SFA assistant professor completes faculty internship with Marriott

Dr. Mary Olle, assistant professor in Stephen F. Austin State University’s School of Human Sciences, recently completed a four-day faculty internship with Marriott at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center in Grapevine. Pictured, from left, are Monette Stockton, Gaylord director of convention services; Olle; Ashley Castillo, director of restaurants; and Mark Beaupre, director of food and beverage.

From the moment she stepped through the resort’s doors, she was in awe of her surroundings. Decorations with an “Alice in Wonderland” theme brought back childhood memories, while a replica of the San Antonio River Walk transported her to the historic Texas city.

Recently, Dr. Mary Olle, assistant professor in Stephen F. Austin State University’s School of Human Sciences, completed a four-day faculty internship with Marriott at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center in Grapevine.

“It was such a wonderful experience and learning opportunity,” Olle said. “I had a behind-the-scenes view of hotel operations and met stars and leaders, as Gaylord employees are called, from human resources, housekeeping, banquet, food and beverage operations, public relations, and more to observe them work.”

Olle, who worked in the hospitality industry for six years before becoming an SFA faculty member, teaches introduction to the hospitality industry, travel and tourism, management in meal production, and administration and promotion of beverages. She said participating in this internship helped update her industry knowledge.

“I was the only faculty intern there, and I interviewed and shadowed hotel stars and leaders every day,” Olle said. “They gave me pertinent information that I will bring back to my students such as knowledge on the latest technologies, management styles, policies, procedures and more.”

The internship also included a corporate overview and field-based practical work experience.

Olle said each day was packed with activities and meetings. For example, she shadowed the culinary team one day and met Mark Beaupre, director of food and beverage, to learn how the Gaylord prepares meals for banquets, guests and catering endeavors. Olle said she plans to use many of the situations she experienced during her internship as case studies in her SFA courses.

“During this experience, I realized even more that you have to have a passion for what you do,” Olle said. “There is a place for everyone in hospitality whether you’re interested in event coordinating, finance, accounting or culinary aspects.”

AGGRAVATED ROBBERY-CHICKEN EXPRESS-1614 NORTH UNIVERSITY DRIVE

Issued 06-29-2016 8:05 am CDT
Contact: Sergeant Greg Sowell, PIO- 936.559.2618

At approximately 11:54 p.m. last night, two suspects robbed the Chicken Express on North University Drive at gunpoint. The suspects entered the store and one displayed a handgun. One of the suspects also assaulted an employee. The employee sustained non-life threatening injuries that did not require immediate medical treatment.

The suspects took an undetermined amount of cash and fled the store on foot, in an easterly direction behind the building. A witness reported seeing two persons, possibly the suspects, enter a wooded area near the store. A perimeter was established in an area between Cardinal Street and East Starr Avenue and the Nacogdoches SWAT team was notified. They conducted a coordinated ground search of this area. This area is heavily wooded with very thick vegetation. This search, using officers and night vision equipment, took almost four hours to complete. No suspects were located in the search, which ended at approximately 4:30 this morning. Participating in the search were NPD officers and officers with the SFASU Police and Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Department. The Nacogdoches Fire Department and County EMS also responded and stood by.

The suspects are still at large and are described as two black males, both with slender build. Any person with information regarding this case should call Nacogdoches Crime Stoppers at 560-INFO (560-4636) or NPD at 559-2607.
