Cincinnati Restaurant Company Creates Valuable Experiences for LGS Students

LGS Applied Skills students are gaining valuable work and life experiences thanks to RGT Management, Inc., one of the largest restaurant companies in the Cincinnati market.

Each month, students travel to RGT Management offices to assist with mailings and other tasks, developing valuable skills in a typical office environment. In appreciation for the students’ time and effort, RGT often provides the students with restaurant coupons, creating opportunities for students to dine out in the community.

RGT also facilitated funding of an oven hood to enable the use of an oven in the school’s Applied Skills kitchen – a kitchen used to help students learn cooking and related skills.

Just as important, RGT is a great ambassador for LGS among its employees and in the community. As a sponsor of LGS’s Crazy Golf event, RGT engaged employees in preparing and serving food for event attendees. At the event, RGT employees and their family members interacted with families and kids with autism and other special needs, providing face painting, playing the Crazy Golf course, joining in the carnival games and more.
