Students Learn About Careers in Hospitality at Hilton Short Hills

Two new Senior Study Skills electives, The Miller Project and Cooking into Adulthood, had a career exploration tour at the Hilton Short Hills on October 22. 


The trip, organized by Transition Coordinator Roger Askins, exposed students to the inner workings of Hilton and possible jobs for both high school and college graduates. The highlight was when students prepared their own lunch with Hilton Executive Chef RIchard Kennedy.
