COMPANY BRING HISPANIC UNIVERSITY STUDENTS TO WASHINGTON, DC

WASHINGTON, DC – The Congressional Hispanic Leadership Institute (CHLI) and Ford Motor Company proudly

announce eight Hispanic university students who have been selected to participate in the Ford Motor Company-CHLI

Leadership Program in Washington, DC. This program provides an opportunity for exceptional university students to work

in the legislative or executive branch of the federal government.

The Ford Motor Company – CHLI Leadership Program offers invaluable insight to Hispanic students who want to gain

first-hand experience on how the federal government works and public policy is shaped. The interns will have an

opportunity to interact and meet appointed and elected officials from all levels of government.

This week, the 2006 Ford Motor Company-CHLI interns met with Congressman Lincoln Diaz-Balart, Chairman of the

Congressional Hispanic Leadership Institute, who welcomed the interns to Washington, DC. "We are proud that such a fine

group of students from across the country were selected to represent CHLI in Washington, DC,” said Congressman Diaz-

Balart. "The CHLI-Ford Leadership program will continue to be recognized as valuable resource to help many Hispanic

university students gain hands-on experience in the public policy arena.”
