Mehlville School District seeks business partners to mentor students


Letter to the Editor 

To the editor:

I have the privilege of helping to ensure Mehlville School District students graduate from our schools as college-, career- and life-ready individuals.

Our students greatly benefit from opportunities to meet and learn from practicing professionals in the fields they are interested in pursuing.

To that end, we are in need of members of our local businesses and industries who are willing to partner with our schools to share their work experiences with students.

We’re looking for partners who can share their time with students to do any of the following activities: speak to a class, attend a career fair, mentor students, serve on district committees, provide internship or shadowing opportunities or participate in a virtual partnership.

You decide how often and in what manner you would be willing to participate. This may be one hour per semester or multiple sessions throughout the school year.

If you are interested in partnering with us, please complete the form at or contact me at or 314-467-7834.

Together, we can expose students to a variety of career pathways and continue to build the capacity of our local workforce.

Thank you for your consideration.
