Trella was my manager at Hardees when I was in high school. Looking back now I don't know how she tolerated all us high school kids. We always had special request to leave early, come in late, work the line, switch to the register...etc, and if she could accommodate us, she always did! She wanted us to enjoy coming to work and always encouraged me to work hard in school first and foremost. I have a strong work ethic to this day, and I attribute a lot of that to Trella and the example she put forth. I haven't talked to her in many years, but always think of her when talking about my jobs I had in high school. RIP
