Dear Fellow Education Advocates,


You and your organization depend on the success of our education delivery system to help all of our citizens become productive members of our economy. Unfortunately, we have 55,000 adults that have not yet achieved their High School Diploma. You can help us help these adults get back on the pathway toward achieving the basic education that they need to live a better life.


We have entered a competition for a grant from the USA Today Network (Gannett Co., Inc.) to present the best idea in the category of Education. The competitors present their ideas in the form of a video and the general public can vote, on-line, up to 30 times (one vote per person per day) from April 12 through May 12. I am asking you to help us bring this grant money to Central Louisiana by voting for our video each day for 30 days. It will take less than a minute. Simply click here and wait for our video with Jim Clinton speaking to come up. Just to the right of Jim, you will see a panel entitled Vote, that will have a brief description of the Project Rewrite. When you are ready, simply click on the Vote, then enter your name, age and email; and submit your vote. This project will benefit the citizens of Central Louisiana (Allen, Avoyelles, Catahoula, Concordia, Grant, LaSalle, Natchitoches, Rapides, Vernon and Winn Parishes).


Please vote early and often, and also, as soon as possible, forward this on to your friends that share our interest in improving the educational attainment for our region. Consider sending to any distribution lists of like minded associates to which you might have access. And use Facebook, Twitter and any other forms of Social Media that you may frequent. Please let me know if you have any questions about this project or this request.


Thank you for your help.
