To the Editor

We would like to publicly thank Mr. Frank Taylor, owner of JT’s Kitchen in Sunderland, and Mr. John Parker, owner of the World Gym, in Prince Frederick for the time and effort they put into our field trip on Tuesday, October 20.

We toured their facilities and they both took time out of their busy schedules to sit down with us and teach us what it takes to run a successful business. We learned from Mr. Parker that as a business owner you need to treat everyone you come into contact with respectfully because you never know when you might see them again. We learned from Mr. Taylor that no one can make you do anything that you don’t want to do and that your personal connections to people are very important when you own your own business.

These two business owners gave back to their community by sharing invaluable information with future business leaders. The information provided on our field trip could never be taught in a classroom.
