Readers may remember Meadowdale High School student Louie Herman and his quest for a summer job. Luckily for Louie, after the story ran in My Edmonds News, several readers wrote in and offered the young man part-time employment. Here is Louie’s update:
“My summer was great! After the story ran, I got several calls from the article, and then they in turn referred me to their friends and neighbors. The thing I liked most about all the different jobs was the chance to learn and practice different work-related skills such as painting, power washing, and car detailing. What I am looking forward to at school this year is starting Running Start at Edmonds Community College, and finishing up my remaining credits at Meadowdale. Thanks again!”
