We want to introduce you to Allison, one of our graduating seniors from East Hardy High School and one of our newest Junior Crew members from the Winter hiring! Allison is one of the six Junior Crew assigned to our new, state-of-the-art Bakery and Kitchen Living Classroom!
Allison shared: “I am excited to continue my work at the Garden Market in the Bakery to further my knowledge and experience, and eventually go to Culinary School! I’ve learned that it is okay to ask questions because it is always essential to know and retain knowledge, at least for me. I also like working here because of how friendly everyone is and getting different learning experiences. The Bakery is like my home away from home – my safe space, if you will. I always feel comfortable there, and I love when our team works together to get things done!”
We hope you have enjoyed knowing more about our current Junior Crew members and alum! Each youth employee impacts the success of this organization by contributing their unique talents and passions, just as our loyal patrons have impacted the learning opportunities we get to provide through donations and support. Stay tuned for future highlights and get to know more about our amazing youth employees.
