Next, Emily Winfrey (business travel manager) and Tina DeErasmo (sales manager) led small groups on tours through the Hilton property, including the catering kitchen and other back-of-the-house spaces in addition to the extensive meeting space for conferences, on-site restaurant, pool and fitness areas, suites and guestrooms.

Finally, Keith Parham (controller) and some of the other Hilton team members we'd previously met gave students great advice for exploring and preparing for careers as they progress through high school and their post-secondary education. Mr. Parham emphasized how the family atmosphere of the hospitality industry and his interactions with guests keep him energized and excited to come to work each day. Thanks to Mr. Kent for providing photos and organizing our visit, as well as the rest of the Hilton staff that spent time with us.
