Using the business skills that he’s developing in his business administration-management program at the Danville, Kentucky Campus, Phillip Walker recently advanced into a management position at Durham’s Grocery.
Phillip started out as a grocery bagger at Durham’s and then moved into jobs in the deli and meat departments when his twin sister, Phillis Walker, a graduate of American National University, encouraged him to enroll at ANU. “I’ve always been a people person, and everybody said they could see me being a boss one day,” he recalled. “I could see me running my own company one day, so I said ‘I guess I’ll go and get my degree.’”
As a student at ANU, Phillip finds he’s gaining business skills that he can apply to his work at the grocery store each day. “These management classes have really helped me out a lot,” he said. “I love that the classes are so small [because] I pay more attention and get hands-on with the teachers.”
After gaining experience in management at Durham’s and earning his degree, Phillip hopes to eventually open a grocery store of his own.
Phillip Walker, a student in the business administration-management program at the Danville, Kentucky Campus has been promoted to manager of Durham's Grocery.
