Mort Elementary School

Vistra has a long-standing relationship with Mort Elementary School. President and CEO Brian Butler’s commitment to learning about the school and providing support in every way possible, prompted him to spend an entire day with former principal, Woodland Johnson. He performed a wide range of duties: teaching, planning, serving lunch and much more.

The first-hand experience provided Brian with insight into ways our community can help lift our public schools to a higher level— inspiring him to challenge fellow CEOs to get involved and spend a day in our Hillsborough County public schools. The innovative idea grew into this unique program in 2019, and the following year Vistra partnered with Hillsborough Education Foundation to lead CEOs in Schools.

Vistra’s relationship with Mort Elementary continues to grow. Today, the entire Vistra team regularly volunteer, hosts student leaders at the company headquarters, supports book fairs, holiday gift drives, sponsors teacher appreciation events and supports other school initiatives.
