Linda Miller, owner of St. John’s Jewelers, grew-up working in her family’s jewelry store. She learned early about the very basics of customer service and running a business from cleaning windows to making customers happy. Linda valued her experiences so much that she wanted to make sure that other young leaders had these same opportunities by hiring local high schoolers to work after school and weekends.
This year 4 of our employees from St. John’s Jewelers graduated from Centennial Lane and Mt. Hebron High Schools. Meet Claire, Amy, Meg and Bridget. Congratulations to all of you!
We will miss our seniors greatly, but we are so proud of them. We know they will go on to accomplish many great things. One of our graduating seniors received the Elizabeth Nass Memorial Scholarship to attend James Madison University. Please support the Elizabeth Nass and Rose Mayr Scholarships by taking part in the 2 Miles for 2 Hearts Memorial Run, August 16th, in Ellicott City.
Several of our past employees come back and work at the store during summer breaks from college and we always look forward to seeing them. In the meantime, our graduating seniors introduced us to younger students from their schools to “take over” for them. So, while we say “goodbye” to our seniors we are saying “welcome” to our new students. As a goodbye and good luck gift, Linda made rings for the graduating class out of sterling silver baby spoons.
Good luck everyone! We can’t wait to see you again soon.
