Every year, we are extremely proud of the DLM associates who are graduating from high school or college. But this year’s class of 2020 is one we want to take a moment to especially recognize for their dedication to DLM and their community. You see, they’ve not only worked hard achieving their academic goals, but they’ve been an essential part of the DLM family during a time in history that very few will have experienced from the front lines of the grocery store. For some, this is their first working experience.
This year’s grads are among the DLM heroes who are dedicated to serving their community. You’ll see them in roles doing everything from cashier and carryout to helping to sanitize carts, like Olivia at DLM Oakwood and Brandon at DLM Springboro, to name a few. Also, as the demand for DLM Drive-Up, our online shopping experience, exploded overnight, grads like Kira and Kelly at Washington Square also have raised their hand to help, allowing us to further serve more households.
“When I think of the class of 2020, I think of their energy, happiness, and resiliency in the face of unprecedented challenge. We congratulate them and celebrate with them! They will always hold a special place in our heart,” says Calvin Mayne, DLM President. It’s with great admiration that we celebrate our 2020 graduates here at DLM—a true class act. These young stars won’t have the typical fanfare of graduation ceremonies, so please, take a moment to turn the page and view their smiling faces. And as you see them in the store, join us in congratulating them.
