Jonathan Marple, Owner and Operator of the Chik-Fil-A in Lawrenceville , always dreamed of owning a business where he could make an impact in his community. Through hard work and faith, he accomplished his dream and shared his experience with us. Our discussion with Mr. Marple took place on July 29, 2022. Alum entering the 10th grade participated in the discussion. As our 10th graders start to think about college and beyond, we found value in them connecting with professionals and learning about different careers. With that in mind, our career discussions this summer were designed to expose our 10th graders to a variety of professionals working in various fields. Through this experience, alum could open themselves to different possibilities and begin networking. Mr. Maple spoke about his journey to college and how he first became involved with Chik-Fil-A. His story echoed Christina's value of grit.
We can't thank Mr. Marple enough for sharing his story with us! Our students left excited to support our local Chik-Fil-A in Lawrenceville!
