The following post is from Family & Consumer Sciences teacher, Elaine Lovett:
During the first week of November, a group of 24 students from MHS attended the Future Hospitality Leaders Day at Newbury College in Brookline. Milton students joined others from Canton, Avon, Waltham, Madison Park, and Blue Hills at this most worthwhile meeting. Students learned about the wide variety of careers in the hospitality industry, from hotels to restaurants, clubs, resorts, functions, athletic venues and other facilities. The keynote speaker, Hillary Baumann, is the Human Resource Director at Fenway Park for ARAMark. She explained some of the opportunities that are available in a workplace like Fenway. Students also met in round table discussions with sales and marketing executives, concierge managers, club managers, restaurant managers, hotel general managers, etc. A tour of Newbury College was included in the Leadership conference. Students were also treated to a continental breakfast as well as a sit down luncheon prepared and served by the Newbury Culinary Arts students.
