Allen Lund Co. was honored last week at Verbum Dei High School Mardi Gras’ Gala for the company’s sustained support of the school’s Corporate Work Study Program. The event, which was held at the Biltmore Hotel in downtown Los Angeles, honored students for their success as well as raised funds for scholarships.
During the event, CEO Allen Lund was commended for his support and participation in the program. “I envision them becoming model citizens. They are educated young men who know a tough part of life and have risen above it. They can become the very best and most talented people we have in society,” Lund said.
The Allen Lund Co. has partnered with Verbum Dei’s Corporate Work Study Program for more than 10 years. ALC sees the program as an invaluable resource for the students. “Allen and his family are extraordinary human beings. They are always looking out for the community and they do it with an extraordinary family base,” stated Timothy R. Busch, CEO, the Busch Firm.
Mike Smith with Bob Smith Toyota also commented about Allen: “He has transformed the Catholic community in Monticello, Utah, by building a Catholic church and making it available to families and youth. Congratulations on this well-deserved and well-earned award. I know that it’s nothing that you would want but everything you deserve.”
The Corporate Work Study Program at Verbum Dei is a focal point at the high school because it’s a means for businesses to make possible for students to have a college-preparatory education. Students gain experience through entry-level positions earning them relief from the cost of their education as well as practice in a professional work setting.
Father Michael Mandala, president of Verbum Dei High School said, “Besides just Verbum Dei, Allen has helped the Catholic Church in Utah and he is chairman of the board of the University of Portland. Congratulations on your award from Verbum Dei.”
