Do you know any vacant tenant spaces available that could help improve the area economically?  Do you know anyone that wants to start a business in Southeast Dallas?  What do you think about a fitness gym or healthier dining option, such as Schlotzsky's Deli?  One of the Chamber's goals is to direct business owners to these vacant spaces.  Call or email us today.


Congratulations Henry Cerda

The Southeast Dallas Chamber and the Communities In Schools of the Dallas Region are excited to announce that Henry Cerda of W.W. Samuell High in Dallas has received a Gates Millennium Scholarship! 

Henry is valedictorian of his class and is extremely excited to attend Southern Methodist University in the fall to major in engineering. This scholarship will assist in paying for his education, and allow him to remain close to his family here in the Dallas area while he studies. 

Henry became involved with CISDR through our United Way: Destination Graduation 2013 summer project, as a peer mentor to incoming CISDR Freshman students. Henry remained active as a CIS Dallas Region student leader via events such as the Deloitte PGA Field Trips, AT&T Aspire seminars, as well as supporting his fellow Samuell Spartans through the school year. 

The Gates Millennium Scholarship is awarded to students who have attained a cumulative GPA of 3.3 or higher, and who have demonstrated leadership abilities through participation in community service, extracurricular or other activities. 

"Henry is very active volunteering and in the school so I literally stayed out of his way, but we met and discussed colleges, careers and family quite often. [He] is a self-made and independent person, and got involved with CIS as a mentor to other students.   

- Evelio Flores, CISDR Site Coordinator at W.W. Samuell High.
