Supporting STEM in Jamaica

If you stopped by our Cherry Public House over the last two summers, you might recognize the smiling face of Trisann, pictured above. One of our dynamite International Ambassadors, she worked as a seasonal prep cook in our Glen Arbor kitchen, but left a few weeks early this year to take a job as a high school chemistry teacher in her home country of Jamaica.

We’ve been checking in with Trisann, and she recently shared that her students are in need of some very basic school supplies (see complete list below). If you would like to donate these items (or anything appropriate for a science class), please drop them off or mail them to Kelli Stepka at our Corporate HQs at 5915 S Ray St., Glen Arbor. You can email Kelli (talent@cherryrepublic.com) with questions or call her at 231-334-3150, ext. 2215.
