Couple marks 40 years of service to The Conklin Center

This month marks 40 years of service for culinary couple Henry and Angelia Reddick.  The Reddick’s began working for The Conklin Center before students arrived in March 1979. They were quite busy setting up the kitchen and planning nutritious meals designed to fuel the many independent living and job readiness activities ahead.

“We really enjoy encouraging our students to try new foods,” said Angelia Reddick.  “The majority of the time, the students discover they like them and it really pleases us to be part of this learning and growing process.”

The Conklin Center President & CEO Kelly Harris noted, “The many lives they’ve touched over the years is astonishing!”

Congratulations Henry & Angelia!
