DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--National residential mortgage lender PrimeLending, a PlainsCapital Company and subsidiary of Hilltop Holdings Inc. (NYSE: HTH), recently completed its summer 2021 multicultural lending internship program, specifically serving college students attending HBCUs. This summer’s inaugural class worked at various branches across the national lender’s home state of Texas.
“This program embodies several strategic initiatives that are at the core of PrimeLending’s mission,” said Latonia Donaldson, VP-Director of Multicultural Lending. “This diverse internship program not only ensures that the modern loan originators’ profile mirrors the evolution of the modern home buyer, but also allows PrimeLending a front-row seat to the equitable opportunity conversation.”
Though in its pilot year, this summer’s internship program was a resounding success, with one intern, Eddie Jackson Jr. of the Houston Bay Area branch, even staying on part-time throughout the academic year. During their time at PrimeLending, interns gained firsthand mortgage experience, explored different career paths within the industry and received invaluable mentorship from some of the top producers in the nation.
“This internship really opened my eyes to career opportunities in the mortgage industry,” said Jackson. “It was gratifying to see the kind of positive impact the Team at PrimeLending has on families and communities – that’s something I want to be a part of.”
Preparations for next summer’s intern program are well underway with plans to expand internship opportunities nationwide, including at the corporate headquarters in Dallas, TX.
