Tommylynn Mokihana Benavente is a long time, dining room instructor at Leeward Community College. She exemplified & taught graciousness to her students & I was completely reminded of that when I stopped by The Pearl to give her a lei before service began today. It was so rewarding for me to listen to hear their pre-service meeting.
Today, was her official last day of “live” service at The Pearl dining room on their campus.
I am so thankful to see how she & the Chef Instructor Chris Garnier are teaching the new generations of students such meaningful “restaurant culture”, ethic, habits & values.
Much mahalo to you Tommylynn (& Chris Garnier).
