Daveyton resident Palesa Sihlangu made Benoni and Peermont Hotel School (PHS) proud on July 17 when she not only graduated as a waitron, but was also named Trailblazer of the Year.
Sihlangu, along with 133 other Ekurhuleni youngsters, graduated from the world-class training institution funded by the Peermont Community Benefit Trust, at Emperors Palace’s Red Roman Shed.
She completed the four month course and received the City and Guilds floating trophy for being the top waitron student in the school’s mid-year graduating group.
Since 2016 the school, through a CSI initiative of Emperors Palace, changed the lives of over 780 local youngsters by giving them theoretical training in various aspects of the hospitality industry.
They were also offered the chance to gain practical insight into vital roles within the industry.
