Founder of community development group OP 10.33 and chief executive officer of D & M Leasing in Dallas, Michael “Mike” Hernandez III is an inspiring business professional and benefactor of various nonprofit organizations in Brownsville and Cameron County. Mike Hernandez III established the Cameron County Education Initiative to offer debt-free education and career preparation programs that will benefit students as they enter the job market.
The Cameron County Education Initiative (CCEI) is the primary driver of OP 10.33’s objective of providing affordable education to students in need, offering various programs in areas related to medicine and construction technology. To qualify for admission to CCEI, students must present either an official high school transcript, an acceptable high school diploma, a GED certificate, or foreign high school documentation. Students may also qualify by providing a copy of the curriculum of their homeschooling or a Wonderlic Basic Skills Test result with a minimum verbal score of 200 and quantitative score of 210.
The CCEI admission procedures consist of an interview with an admissions representative followed by a tour of the school and a meeting with a financial officer. The admissions representative will facilitate completion of the enrollment agreement and other required forms to officially accept the student’s application.
