The Salute to Excellence Forum brings national hospitality, restaurant and foodservice industry leaders together with promising students and top educators. As participants in the Forum, Byers and St. Clair attended workshops, forums, gala events and career fairs sponsored and facilitated by representatives from, among others, Coca-Cola, Diners Club International, Tyson Foods and Disney.

“Both Jennifer and Aimee are exceptional students,” said Richard Mills, Assistant Professor of Hospitality and Tourism, who nominated both students for inclusion in the Forum. “In addition to excelling in the classroom, both young women have worked with local industry entrepreneurs through the National Education Center for Women in Business.
