The South Albany High School Red Zone Cafe is open for business in the new cafeteria. To celebrate, the school honored Dutch Bros. Coffee last week for their help and support.
Dutch Bros. owners, managers and workers visited the now open cafe and attended a school assembly for recognition in front of the whole school. SAHS students presented Dutch Bros. managers and staff with thank you gifts.
Dutch Bros. has provided important mentorship to students operating the new coffee shop and even hired one of the SAHS Red Zone students as a permanent employee in one of their coffee locations.
“I am really excited that our workers get firsthand training weekly from Annie, the general manager from Dutch Bros.,” said Pam Bethards, Red Zone student advisor.
Parents and students were invited into 3 computer labs to get a jump start on completing the financial aid forms required for all post high school programs. The evening was a huge success with hundreds of people in attendance and tremendous success in getting this vital process started. A special thanks to counselor Clair Smith for this idea.
