  • After the United Way was destroyed by fire, the students created an inventory of all donated furniture from six locations, using a multi-page spreadsheet. They then cre-ated floor plans for multiple large and small agencies in the United Way, using computer aided drafting software, so that the agencies would have the information they needed to select replacement furniture from the donated inventory.
  • The chefs preparing the meal were six students in the Ivy Tech Community College-Columbus/Franklin culinary program and their instructor, Chef Joe Strangis, chair of the hospitality program. Jonathan Wilson, dean of the School of Fine Arts & Design, showed his support by donning a chef’s hat and becoming a server. What was even more wonderful were the benefits of that evening and the continued partnership between Ivy Tech and Mill Race Center. The culinary students were able to use what they had learned in class to prepare a complete meal for a large number of guests and, afterward, to reflect on what went well, what went wrong, and what they would change in future, similar situations. Members of Mill Race Center and their friends were able to assist the students in their studies, to enjoy a wonderful dinner, and to enjoy each other.
