HyVee recently honored at the LLWA WIB meeting as a Business Partner for LEC

December 17, 2019

The Land of Lincoln Workforce Alliance (LLWA) recently recognized private sector companies that have demonstrated leadership in the areas of workforce and economic development during the PY’ 18 (program year, July 1, 2018 – June 30, 2019). HyVee was honored at the LLWA WIB meeting as a partner of Lawrence Education Center.  HyVee is known for its customer service and quality products. HyVee has provided the LEC Prepare Youth to Work Students the opportunity to learn about the food industry and customer service. Heather Gearity, Tish Leach and their team have walked our students through every aspect of their store. Before their internship, the LEC PYTW students had never been employed and HyVee has been the ideal business to teach the students the basic fundamentals of work ethics. Thanks and Congratulations!
