I am reaching out to you in search of good students that need an alternative path towards higher education. We hired a number of Deland Highschool students throughout the summer, and they performed magnificently. I am still hiring for that population and seek your assistance. This is a great opportunity for today's work-study option and may be a viable path towards college bound students that do not have readily available means to continue the dream.
Please contact me should you have any questions, comments, or recommendations.
