Students from Right in the Community and Cobb County Schools Sets Team enjoyed a great afternoon recently at Longhorn Steakhouse’s Disability Mentoring Day at its Akers Mill location in Smyrna.
Students took a tour of the restaurant and learned how it operates on a daily basis. They also donned non-slip boots and actually visited the kitchen and clean-up areas. Students and staff were then treated to a great lunch! Students had a lot of questions for restaurant service manager Scott McLelland, and they were very excited to think that jobs at Longhorn Steakhouse might be a possibility.
After lunch, McLelland led students in a silverware rolling contest. Student Michelle out-rolled everyone, including McLelland! The students and teachers were all impressed by Longhorn’s outreach to persons with disabilities, and they look forward to opportunities with Longhorn Restaurants in the future.
Right in the Community is a private, non-profit agency in Marietta that serves families and children with developmental disabilities throughout Cobb County. Its mission is to promote opportunities for all persons with disabilities to live full, productive, self-determined lives of the highest quality by fostering local communities which embrace all people. It’s good to see that Longhorn is interested in that as well.
