Bill Marriott blogs about Bridges

Years ago, when our company was first beginning to add hotels to our business, my dad would scout locations for new hotels by watching the traffic across the bridges of Washington. He would say they would never move the bridges. He knew that a hotel built near a bridge or a Hot Shoppe near a bridge would always have steady traffic, and the opportunity for new customers every day.

How appropriate then, that so many years later, the Marriott Foundation for People With Disabilities would launch a program that would provide thousands of young people with mental, physical and cognitive challenges the training and opportunities they need to find solid employment and build their careers – and that it would be named “Bridges From School to Work.”
