St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Cleveland Heights made the day truly special by bringing in lunch and gifting the graduates with knife kits featuring a chef’s knife engraved with their name. It’s a useful and thoughtful commemoration of their time at EDWINS.

Monet and Bryan obtained a full-time position at First Watch in Pine Crest. Lesa, Frank and Richard are helping to open the Silverspot Cinema in Orange Village. Eddie is bartending, serving and cooking at Shaker Country Club. Michael started at the Capital Grill. Davante earned a position at L’Albatros. Damien is loving being at the Rib Cage in Cleveland Heights. You can find Arnesto at Cibreo downtown.

We are so proud of each of you, and we know you’re all going on to do great things!

Our thanks to Peter Cardello for capturing these images and sharing them with us!
