Student’s name: Eric Wolf

Parents: Ruth and Bryan Wolf

High school: Kokomo High School senior

Career plans: Automotive electronics superstore owner

KACC instructor: Mike Miller,strategic marketing

Internship Placement: Taco Bell, 2212 W. Sycamore St.

Supervisor: Holly Chapman, Taco Bell general manager

Eric Wolf’s thoughts: “I applied for a job at Taco Bell because it is only two blocks from my house. My first day was a little rough because I was not familiar with the environment. Once I started focusing on the tasks, I was fine. Now, it is like I have been working at Taco Bell forever. I am a social person, so I am the lobby guy where I can interact with customers. I work about 55 hours every two weeks. My experience at the Kokomo Area Career Center has shown me where I would like to be professionally. This is my fourth year in the automotive classes. My auto tech teacher, Mr. [David] Lingle, told me about the Installer’s Institute, which is a 12- to 16-week course in Daytona Beach, Florida. I hope to attend that school since my passion is car audio. These classes will help turn my hobby into a job.”

Holly Chapman’s comments: “Since March 22, Taco Bell has been offering breakfast. Our breakfast menu includes the A.M. crunch wrap, waffle taco, a variety of breakfast burritos and tacos and coffee. I was happy that I could be a help to a Kokomo Area Career Center student as he gained experience, since I attended the career center as well. Eric has learned customer service, money and time management and communication skills. Eric received computer training before he worked at the computer hands-on. Eric has blossomed as an employee and has been able to accomplish every task we could ask for in a customer service person. We keep Eric up front in the restaurant where he keeps the customers happy. Eric is great with people, and they will gravitate to him no matter what profession he chooses.”
