Ogeechee Technical College recently announced an accolade earned by one of their own.

Adeana Brinson, a Hotel/Restaurant/Tourism Management student at Ogeechee Technical College, will intern at the Dillard House located in Dillard, Georgia.

From a press release:

Brinson said her search for an internship that would provide her with exposure to event planning and hotel and restaurant operations, led her to a conversation with Alice Mathews, co-owner of Buzz Marketing. Mathews and partner, Jenny Lynn Anderson, are coordinating the 100th year anniversary events for the Dillard House throughout 2017. They put Brinson in touch with Natalie Dillard, owner of the Dillard House, Dillard and Brinson had a phone interview and a week later, Brinson was able to visit the place spoken so fondly of by her family and friends.

Brinson said, “When I met with Ms. Dillard, the other staff members, and toured the facilities, I quickly fell in love with the property, the history, and, of course, the food!” Brinson went on to say,” I will be assisting in the planning and logistics of the celebrations of the 100th birthday of the Dillard House, as well as events such as weddings and conventions. I will also be able to observe and work in all departments, including housekeeping, the kitchen and restaurant, the front desk, and more!  I’m looking forward to meeting new people, networking, working the special events, learning more about the history of the Dillard House, and experiencing different situations that will help me in my future career in the hospitality industry.”
