Winnie, Maria, and the rest of their team, have continuously collaborated with SCE’s DSS Program over the past several years. Both Winnie and Maria have provided the students in the DSS College to Career, DSS WISE Program, and Cypress College Culinary Arts Program an environment in which they have learned and gained valuable hospitality and guest services experiences. With their mentoring and guidance, Winnie and Maria have given DSS students the opportunity to grow professionally and personally.
