Alexa Fothergill

Senior Alexa Fothergill earned high marks for her work at Home Goods in Orlando. The manager of the retail store praised her ability to handle challenges. Fothergill explains that includes reorganizing the story and color-coordinating items such as towels and other linens. But her favorite part of the job is working with store guests.

“The customers are great; I’ve never had a bad experience,” said Fothergill, who plans to study health science and radiology at Valencia College after graduation.
