(This is a tad late in getting up online, my apologies to the students and the school, but better late than never!)
The Statler Center, in conjunction with Lighthouse Central Florida (a past Community Guide feature) graduated their first class here in Orlando on November 20th. The 15 students all have vision disabilities and very optimistic career opportunities in the Central Florida Hospitality industry. Their program had them working with hoteliers across the area and in the classroom to prepare them for the day-to-day of working in one of the country’s busiest hospitality sectors. Congrats to the first of many successful graduating classes of Statler here in Orlando.
Here is a video interview with the Employment Guide and Mary Ellen Mest, a project manager for the National Statler Center.
