DALLAS, September 27, 2021– (BUSINESS WIRE) – National residential mortgage lender PrimeLending, a PlainsCapital company and a subsidiary of Hilltop Holdings Inc. (NYSE: HTH), recently completed its summer 2021 multicultural lending internship program, intended specifically for university students attending HBCUs. This summer’s inaugural class worked at various home state branches of the Texas National Lender.
“This program embodies several strategic initiatives that are at the heart of PrimeLending’s mission,” said Latonia Donaldson, vice director of multicultural lending. “This diverse internship program not only ensures that the profile of modern loan originators reflects the evolution of the modern home buyer, but also allows PrimeLending to be at the forefront of the conversation about fair opportunities.”
Although in its pilot year, this summer’s internship program was a resounding success, with intern Eddie Jackson Jr. of the Houston Bay Area branch even remaining part-time throughout the academic year. During their time at PrimeLending, interns gained first-hand mortgage experience, explored different career paths within the industry, and received invaluable mentorship from some of the country’s top producers.
“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 PrimeLending team have on families and communities – it’s something I want to be a part of.”
Preparations for next summer’s internship program are well underway with plans to expand internship opportunities nationwide, including at headquarters in Dallas, TX.
