TWEETS FROM THE PARK:

CITY PARK FACTS:

City Park would not be the place it is today without President Rooseveltís Works Progress Administration efforts during the Great Depression. More than 20,000 men and women were employed to build bridges, roads, fountains, the Botanical Garden and Tad Gormley stadium, and to dig more 11 miles of lagoons - work all done by hand.

The National Association of Concessionaires (NAC) has announced that Steven Lew has been awarded the 2014 President’s Expo Scholarship. The Concession & Hospitality Expo is being held from July 15-18, 2014 at the Denver Marriott City Center in Denver, Colorado. Lew is the Concessions Manager for New Orleans City Park. He holds two B.S. degrees in Marketing and Business Administration from the University of New Orleans.

Lew says that he takes all educational opportunities seriously, “I really enjoy what I do and I have used all my educational and job experiences to assist in managing the Concessions Department…the knowledge I will take back from the Expo will help me teach my employees and improve the park’s concession operations.”

Founded by then-NAC President Maria Angles, ECM, with an initial donation in 2009, the President’s Convention Scholarship Fund was created to provide a scholarship package each year to the NAC Annual Convention. The Fund will continue through donations and proceeds from the NAC Silent Auction and the NAC Run/Walk.

Past recipients of the scholarship include Tara Buck of Classic Cinemas; Mike Scarpino, CCM, of the Calgary Flames; Gary Butske Jr. of Emagine Entertainment; Denise Ferro, CCM, of Phoenix Big Cinemas and Jeff Hanauer, CCM, of Ovations Food Service. The scholarship package includes full registration to the NAC Annual Convention, three nights’ hotel accommodations and a travel stipend.
