A DART-Greater Dallas Chamber partnership
DART employees return to school
Through a partnership between DART and the Greater Dallas Chamber, 16 DART employees went back to the classroom at Greiner Middle School this year to participate in the Texas Scholars Program.
"The Greater Dallas Chamber works with area businesses to address workforce and readiness issues through the Texas Scholars Program," says Carrie Rogers, program manager. "DART's participation provides the students with positive role models and a firsthand look at the many career choices available to them."
This is the second year of DART's partnership with the Greater Dallas Chamber. This year, DART employees reached more than 500 eighth-graders in bilingual English-Spanish sessions at Greiner in Oak Cliff. Overall, the Texas Scholars program was presented to more than 11,000 students in the Dallas Independent School District this fall.
