Why Darrius was selected as this month’s “Employee of the Month”:
Darrius is a dedicated employee who started as a grill cook and worked his way up to being one of our culinary staff’s leaders. He spearheaded an employee fishing day at our lake where he spent the entire day helping others fish. This was wonderful for everyone except Darrius…he was unable to catch a fish of his own after dreaming about the experience for more than two years. Darrius is a true asset and leader, and we are very proud to have him on our team.
