CMC employee has zest for life

CMC employee has zest for life

The salads, fruit and assorted entrees at Claremont McKenna’s Collins Dining Hall aren’t quite complete without one more ingredient added to the mix: Cheva M. Garcia. The 89-year-old Claremont resident has been a permanent fixture at the school’s lunch line since she was hired on in 1951. She remains the school’s longest standing employee, an honor she wears with pride. “This place is like my second home,” Ms. Garcia said. “These people are my family.” Meal service at CMC has changed over the years—from a mix of hors d'oeuvres to a family-style spread to the more traditional pick-your-pleasure cafeteria fare that is served today—but Ms. Garcia approaches her work with the same gusto. This is just one of the feature stories in Friday's Healthy Living special section. COURIER photo/Peter Weinberger
