I would like to commend Valerie Cherbero for writing what is perhaps the best op-ed column I have read all year in The Heights (“Learning Respect, One Scoop at a Time”). I myself have worked in the service industry for almost 10 years and couldn’t agree more with her insights. I have only one thing to add: when you work in the service industry you work alongside, and become friends with people who aren’t college-educated, wealthy, and entitled. Here at BC we always talk about the less fortunate, but how many of us can truly say we are friends with that kid from high school who barely got his diploma and is now struggling to make ends meet?
As a senior, I will be pleased if our Commencement speaker is half as insightful as Valerie’s op-ed. Well done
