Good News: Local Teen Hired For Work Ethic

Indianapolis 18-year-old Jhaqueil Reagan was walking to a job interview at a thrift store (10 miles away in the snow and ice) when he caught the eye of local cajun restaurant owner Art Bouvier.  Art was putting salt down in the parking lot of Indianapolis favorite Papa Roux when Jhaqueil asked him for directions.  Art said if he was willing to walk 10 miles to an interview, he was willing to hire him on work ethic alone.  Jhaqueil started work the next day.  Art posted the “chance encounter” on Papa Roux Facebook page, and from there it went viral.  Kurt and I had the chance to meet Jhaqueil yesterday.  He told us he’s a little overwhelmed with the attention — he just wants to work!  Check out the full story here.
