Letter from the President:


Dear Reader,

I wanted to take a few minutes to reach out to our current members of Mesa Sister Cities. We have had a very active summer.

A few weeks ago I was elected to be your new President of this awesome organization. I am honored and excited to be joining the efforts from a 5 year volunteer and corporate board member to now President. Thank you all for the opportunity!

I am a Mesa resident with 4 sons who all attend / or graduated school in Mesa. My wife Shannon and I have been supporting Mesa Sister Cities for 5 years now and love the events and mission!
I have been working for Cox Communications for 19 years here in Mesa and I am blessed to be able to get Cox involved with the efforts of this organization. Golf tournament sponsorship has been something that I am proud Cox Communications continues to support year after year.

Since taking office, I have been fortunate to see first-hand and be involved in the student exchange program. I was able to attend the welcome party, Grand Canyon trip, Diamondbacks game, Thanksgiving dinner, and learning / culture presentations from our Youth Ambassadors. Ana Cadillo did an amazing job coordinating the efforts over the last several months and it was a success again this year. Thank you to all who showed up to support the various several events that were on the calendar this summer. There was allot of work and preparation but it was very rewarding!

This past Friday Mesa Sister Cities and myself was able to be guests at the Mesa Morning Live show brought to you by the Mesa Chamber of Commerce. I was able to be interviewed on the show about Mesa Sister Cities as the “Spotlight Guest”. It was fun and exhilarating sharing the program to the attendees of the show as well as watch the youth ambassadors man the booth that was set up so they could ask questions and work on their socializing skills with everyone in attendance. The show will be aired soon on Channel 11. Follow this link for details..

Dustin EwertI wanted make sure you all knew who I was and I am super honored, and excited to be part of this amazing organization!
