Letter From Mayor Rawlings

To Companies


December 9, 2013


Dear Friends,


At the cornerstone of my candidacy for Mayor of Dallas was the belief that our city’s economic vitality hinges on a quality public education system. Since becoming Mayor I am absolutely convinced that by making an investment in the education of our youth we are indeed making an investment in Dallas and our future workforce. If you too believe our youth must be prepared to succeed at college and in the workplace, please join me in support of a powerful way for students to make the connection between a good education and a great career – the Dallas Mayor’s Intern Fellows Program.


The Mayor’s Intern Fellows Program is an eight-week, paid summer internship program introducing students from public and charter high schools to careers and employment opportunities in industries and companies where they have expressed interest. Facilitated by nonprofit Education is Freedom, the program provides all student fellows with exemplary professional training in resume building, interviewing, business communication, professional dress and etiquette, financial literacy and career choices.


Here is what I am asking you to do:


Commit your company to at least one summer intern for 2014!

If you are unable to host an intern at your business, you can underwrite an intern at a local nonprofit.


Please consider this letter as my personal request to you as a business leader to commit your money, your time and your energy to the future of Dallas.


Please join me in sowing the seeds for workforce growth and development and thus securing Dallas’ success for tomorrow!


Most gratefully,


Mayor Michael S. Rawlings
