Holiday Inn Express & Suites nominated for Academy Partner of the Year for work with Antioch High

The Holiday Inn Express & Suites Nashville Southeast Antioch is a proud Business Partner for the Academy of Hospitality and Tourism at Antioch High School.

Students have the opportunity to visit the hotel and participate in job shadowing of all departments.

Spending time with the Front Desk Agents, Chief Engineer, Housekeeping Manager, Director of Sales, and General Manager allows the students to see all sides of the hotel industry and identify an area that may be interesting to them.

Students are encouraged to ask questions and participate in hands on activities that supplement their classroom learning.

This year the Holiday Inn Express & Suites was one of three nominees for Academy Partnership of the Year for Hospitality & Tourism. General Manager, Larry Strachan, attended the Chamber of Commerce Academies Awards Dinner on behalf of the hotel.  Mr. Strachan also serves on the Hospitality & Tourism Partnership Council, an organization that helps Nashville Public Schools develop programs that are relevant to the industry and prepare students for job placement.

Antioch High School and Holiday Inn Express & Suites are looking forward to continuing this successful partnership for the 2017-2018 school year!
