  • As February is Black History Month, TE would like to recognize influential African Americans throughout our country's history.  Today's subject is Benjamin Banneker, an inventor and architect. As a free and self-taught African-American who took over his family's farm at the age of 15, Benjamin Bannecker is known for inventing the first clock in America in the 1750s.  Mr. Banneker was a contemporary of Thomas Jefferson, and wrote to him discussing the topics of slavery and racial equality.  He is best known for designing and surveying the area for what is now the nation's capital in Washington D.C. in 1791 after the lead architect quit, saving the project.   Stay tuned for more biographies throughout the month!

  • Today for lunch in the Create line you can have Bosco Sticks, in the Grill line you can have Philly Cheese Steak and in the So Deli line you can have your choice of deli sandwiches. Have a great day and do your best to strive for five!
