Getting ready to bite into food truck menu options from UKRAFT Eats, junior Claire Middleton and seniors Aaliyah Weston and Reema Alhachami learn about the logistics of owning a food truck from owner and operator Matt Ratz. Marketing I teacher Holly Weber brought in Ratz to guide students as they create their own food trucks for their class projects, and inspire them to set and accomplish goals. There are so many different options of what you can eat, or what [the truck] can look like and hearing about how it started was so interesting to me,” Middleton said. “[Ratz] said specifically that you should follow your dreams, and you have an idea or a vision of something you really want to do, go for it and go all in. It gave me more of a positive outlook and if I do set my mind to something I can get there and accomplish it.”

Using the latte machine, Blue Brew crew member and junior Pierce Burns prepares an order for a customer. The crew members and Marketing II students are learning from and adapting to the wants of the students. “Some people may have noticed our new straws.

Wrapping gifts and organizing supplies, sophomore Rachel Deadwyler, junior Johnathan Stephens and senior Brandi Beaubien set up for Marketing IIs holiday wrapping event. Community members have the opportunity to bring the gifts for marketing and DECA students to wrap in exchange for a donation to the Day of Service programming. For parents who are really busy this time of year, its really helpful for them to just be able to drop off gifts. It relieves a lot of stress and its for a really good cause, Beaubien said.
