While students enjoyed delicious and satisfying lunches, Robert Cochran, owner of Misty Ridge Landscaping and Midway Garden Center, spoke to the students about setting goals, living and working in Westfield, hard work and dedication. Cochran told the students to, “set goals, but not just in your mind. Write them down and read them daily.” Cochran also acknowledged the students’ high academic achievement along with the many various extra-curricular, employment, sports, music and family activities they are involved in.
