Austin Todd Wins Glen Bell Scholarship
Austin Todd, who has been with Summerwood for the past 4 years, was awarded the Glen Bell Scholarship through the Taco Bell "Feed Your Dream" Scholarship Program. Austin is currently in his first semester at Cecil College in Maryland, while still working part-time for us as a team member at our Taco Bell in Bear, Delaware.
The scholarship is named after the Taco Bell founder, Glen Bell, and provides qualified hourly employees with an opportunity to apply for financial help towards college or a vocational school.
MS City to Shore Bike Race
Kathy Mullane, VP of Human Resources and Steve Basile, Controller ride the MS City to the Shore bike ride! This is now an annual charity event for Summerwood, which supports employee participation in this worthy cause.
Kathy Mullane heads up the Summerwood race team and coordinates all details in preparation for this event. She enjoys taking part because it motivates her to reach her fitness goals while helping others. According to Kathy, "Steve rode 75 miles from Cherry Hill and I rode 50 miles from Hammonton to Ocean City. Next year, my intention is to ride 75. I ride because of the personal challenge, but more importantly, to raise money and awareness for MS."
