Students Explore Different Careers Through “Lunch and Learn”
This week, Chick-fil-A Operator and Prince Avenue parent, Shane Todd, spoke to PACS high school students about having a career in business. The event was the first in the newly established “Lunch and Learn” program. Throughout the school year, high school students will have the opportunity during lunch to hear speakers from different careers and walks of life in areas of particular interest.
Mr. Todd spoke to the students about the importance of having a Biblical perspective on business, work, and money. He explained that work is a form of worship and an opportunity to minister to those that come in contact with your business. “If you work hard to do your business well and provide a quality product and environment, then you have the opportunity to positively affect not only your customers, but your employees as well.” Mr. Todd went on to say, “All of work is 100 percent business and 100 percent ministry.”
When asked what he enjoyed about “Lunch and Learn” with Shane Todd, junior Josh Cartey said that Mr. Todd helped him to have a clear picture of what it means to be a Christian businessman. Junior Collin Sweet explained that he enjoyed learning about the purpose behind what Chick-fil-A does as a business.
Mr. Todd ended his “Lunch and Learn” time with a question and answer session, and all of the students in attendance received a copy of Truett Cathy's book, Eat Mor Chikin, Inspire More People.
