McDonald's and USHLI Team Up to Launch Student Leadership Summit in San Antonio
McDonald's and USHLI recently entered into a new partnership to launch a series of Student Leadership Summits, which will be held in 10 urban, suburban, and rural markets in nine states and Washington, DC. The series was launched at Sidney Lanier High School in San Antonio. The event, attended by over 1,700 students and teachers, featured two nationally prominent motivational speakers, a breakout session on scholarships and "how to" finance your postsecondary education, and a career and college recruitment fair. USHLI is very grateful to Dr. Sylvester Perez, Superintendent of the San Antonio Independent School District, for his leadership and to his entire team at SAISD for their assistance in planning and hosting the event and organizing the Career and College Recruitment Fair. A press conference was held at Café College to announce the launch. Speaking at the press conference and expressing their strong support were

Mayor Julian Castro, Dr. Sylvester Perez, and McDonald's representative Mr. Danny Cervantes. Former City Councilwoman Mary Alice Cisneros served as emcee. Local partners included Lolly Byington, executive director of American Sunrise, and public and media relations consultant Irma Calderon Woodruff.

Our nationally prominent motivational speakers included Carlos Ojeda, Jr. and Ernesto Mejia.

SLS participating schools will see their students become better motivated, more involved in class and extracurricular activities, more determined to succeed academically and in life, and better prepared to enter the workforce. An estimated 15,000 students, parents, and teachers are expected to be served through this new series of Student Leadership Summits.

For more information about the McDonald's-sponsored series, interested persons should contact Dr. Juan Andrade at docandrade@ushli.org.
