KEY QUOTES:

 

“The Conference opens student minds to a future in the hospitality industry.  They learn they can be general managers, executive chefs but also lawyers, architects, engineers and marketing professionals.” -  Luis Barrios, General Manager, Hilton San Diego Airport at Harbor Island

 

“Building an innovative and diverse workforce is a priority at SDG&E.  As a lead sponsor, we are committed to empowering students to be college and career ready. ” - Scott Crider, Vice President, Customer Services, San Diego Gas & Electric

 

“We are so grateful to all of the wonderful corporations and business partners who will open their doors to our students and share their career success stories and experiences.   These students are the next generation of hospitality’s leaders and it’s important to invest in them now.” - Matthew Caponi, President, San Diego Chapter, California Restaurant Association

 

“Students walk away feeling inspired.  They start talking about their passions, goals and future steps they are going to take to ensure they become tomorrow’s leaders in this growing and important sector in the San Diego economy.” - Al Love, Director of College, Career & Technical Education, San Diego Unified 

 

“The conference really opened my eyes to the various career opportunities in the hospitality industry.  I learned what it takes to be an executive chef of a fine dining bistro to an event manager of a giant cruise ship.  It inspired me to work hard and save money to open my own restaurant in San Diego someday.”

- Emily Rodriguez, Future Restaurant Owner & Mesa College Student  

 

“We hope the high schools students will learn about the transformational career paths that exist in the hospitality industry.  The industry is terribly misunderstood and perceived as low wage only.  In fact, our students earn good wages while in school and when they graduate.” -  Carl Winston, Director at L. Robert Payne School of Hospitality, San Diego State University.

MEDIA ADVISORY: Statement from President Barrera

SENT ON BEHALF OF BOARD PRESIDENT RICHARD BARRERA

 

MEDIA ADVISORY:

February 13, 2017

 

Those of us who believe in public education have an obligation to be open and honest about the progress our schools are making. In that spirit, I co-sponsored a resolution inviting the new Secretary of Education to visit San Diego Unified. The intention was to help her learn all the things that public schools are doing well. We also believed – and still believe – that her narrow ideologically driven view of our schools does not stand up to the facts. So, my intention was to challenge her views openly and in a public setting. 

Given the polarizing nature of the DeVos nomination and confirmation vote, however, it is clear this would be the wrong time to engage the Secretary in dialogue. Now is the time for those of us who believe in public education to stand together and confront the threat clearly posed by the DeVos ideology.

Therefore, I have decided to withdraw my co-sponsorship for this resolution, which effectively kills the measure. I apologize to all of those we excluded from the conversation by moving forward so quickly. Our intention was not to exclude anyone from the process, and so I hope we can now all move forward together to create a genuine conversation about the future of our schools with the public we serve.
