Bryan,TX Those who have dined in at the Chick-fil-A on Briarcrest in Bryan have most likely seen a very friendly face working the dining room.
Rebecca Pivonka has been a part of the Chick-Fil-A family for 16 years and today she clocked out for the final time.
Rebecca, better known as “Becky” to her friends and family, has Down syndrome but she has never let the disability stand in her way.
According to her co-workers, her excellent work ethic combined with her kind spirit has made her an outstanding employee and they are excited to see her move on to a new opportunity.
Becky will begin taking classes at Texas A&M this fall to become a certified nursing assistant. She will participate in the “PATHS Program” which is offered at the Center on Disability and Development at Texas A&M University. The program helps people with various disabilities receive professional certifications.
Becky says her time at Chick-Fil-A has prepared her for a successful future. "It gave me more courage more respect and more understanding for the people…with love and respect".
When Becky’s shift ended at 3-o'clock on Friday her friends, family, and co-workers presented her with cake, gifts, balloons, and words of encouragement.
