    Hi Angela,

    this is a great organization and I would be very interested in providing a point of contact in Education. My name is Mark Pullam, and I am the Campus Director for National American University, Mesquite, TX. We agree that education is very important and we offer degree programs that further promote growth and success for all students following HS.
    I would enjoy hosting a tour or field trip for your students, just to show them the variety of options in continuing their education and how important education can be to their future. Please let me know if this is a partnership that we can develop. Please call or e-mail me. We are having a ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday, June 21, 2012 @ 11am. The Mesquite Chamber of Commerce will host. You can reach me at mapullam@national.edu or 972.773.8801.
