Education matters to business which is why the Best Southwest Partnership is deeply invested in strengthening the region’s local talent pipeline for all students from Pre-K through post-secondary and into the workforce. The Partnership has designated Education as a Core Initiative and works with our partner school districts in Cedar Hill, DeSoto, Duncanville, and Lancaster to drive improvements in public education, prepare students to graduate with the skills needed to succeed and provide the business community with a talented, skilled, local workforce.

One of our main  priorities is working with our partners to sponsor yearly scholarships for deserving students in each of our Best Southwest member cities.

The region is also home to world class secondary educational opportunities. We partner with our higher education institutions, UNT Dallas, Dallas College- Cedar Valley, Dallas College- Mountain View, and Texas State Technical College (TSTC) in Red Oak, to develop initiatives that increase access to educational opportunities and create the most qualified candidates to meet the needs of the ever changing regional workforce.
