The award is a plaque made out of metal and wood. Ken Chin from the Grocery People in Edmonton gave the plaque to me on March 18, 1999 at Super-A-Foods store. Why? Because I earned it for 25 years in retail foods.
I worked at Super-A-Foods for 3 years. The different places Ive worked at are: Howards Econo-Mart in 1965 for 1 year, Hardware for 5 years, 25 years at Riverside Groceries, and 1 year at Super-Value.
I completed a Produce Management and Operations certificate course on February 16, 1998. Im doing my English and Math for my GED at Yukon Learn.
What I want to do next is to take some more Business Math courses through Cornell University and through correspondence from Ithaca, New York.
