School, pizza parlor recognize sophomores for high grades
DOWAGIAC — Another group of exceptional Dowagiac Union High School sophomores were recognized last week for maintaining high marks on their report cards this past semester.
The high school’s Youth Experiencing Success teamed up with the local Little Caesars to honor a group of 30 sophomores, who earned all A’s and B’s in their classes during the first semester this school year during a ceremony at the school last Thursday.
Randi Green gave a presentation on her role as store manager at Little Caesars during the ceremony. She talked about keeping track of inventory, preparation requirements to ensure fresh pizzas are ready every day, and the tasks of store management.
She also provided a coupon to each student for a free “Hot and Ready” pizza from the business.
This is the third year Little Caesars has supported the Youth Experiencing Success Program. The business has provided more than 100 coupons for food at this franchise.
Green has been a strong supporter of the program, and is happy to work for a business that shows its appreciation for outstanding student academic performance.
During the presentation, YES program coordinator and student advocate Doug Pearson addressed the students, and congratulated them on their achievement.
“What you have accomplished is a reflection of not only your academic success, but it says a lot about your character as well,” Pearson told the students. “You are hard-working, dedicated, disciplined and determined. You do the work when at times it might not be what you want to do. These character traits will serve you well in school, but also in the work environment as employers want to hire this kind of person.”
Union High Principal Kelly Millin was present during the ceremony as well, and assisted in handing out the certificates.
