 COMERICA INCORPORATED AWARDS LEADERSHIP DETROIT FELLOWSHIP
 DETROIT, Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Comerica Incorporated (NYSE: CMA) today announced it has awarded the first Comerica Leadership Detroit Fellowship to Manuela M. Zarate, director of recruitment/special projects, SER, Metro-Detroit. The $1,250 Comerica fellowship will fund a majority of Zarate's tuition for Leadership Detroit, a community leadership training program of the Greater Detroit Chamber of Commerce.
 Initiated in 1979, Leadership Detroit is designed to train the area's emerging leaders in facing key issues and achieving positive change in metropolitan Detroit. "In its 13 years, over 700 people have successfully completed Leadership Detroit training," said Ann Hoag, executive director, Leadership Detroit. "As a result of their involvement in Leadership Detroit, participants have demonstrated increased community service and improved leadership skills."
 Beginning Sept. 24 and continuing over a 10-month period, Zarate and 65 others representing a cross-section of metropolitan Detroit will participate in a series of Leadership Detroit seminars addressing educational, social and economic issues.
 "We are pleased to support Leadership Detroit in its efforts to galvanize those in our community who are in a position to make a difference in Detroit's future," said Michael T. Monahan, president, Comerica Bank. "We believe that the community sector must be strongly represented in Leadership Detroit, therefore we approached the Chamber and expressed interest in supporting a highly qualified community representative," said Monahan.
 Zarate has worked with SER, Metro-Detroit, an employment and training company, since 1976 and has been associated with the Detroit Board of Education as a bilingual educational technician. Her volunteer activities with the local League of United Latin American Citizens led to her election as state director of the Michigan League of United Latin American Citizens and an appointment to the organization's national board of directors. Zarate has a bachelor's degree in human resource administration from Concordia College and currently is pursuing a master's degree in public administration at Central Michigan University.
 "We were very impressed with Manuela Zarate's background and are delighted to assist someone of her caliber in participating in Leadership Detroit," said Kathryn A. Bryant, Comerica vice president of Civic Affairs. Hoag agreed, saying, "Her work in the Hispanic community has shown that Manuela Zarate has a strong role to play in Detroit's community development."
