Students Lunch & Learn with co-founder of Friendly Ice Cream

On May 15, 2012, Wilbraham & Monson Academy Global Scholars and students from the CEGS Entrepreneurship and Marketing classes class sat down for a lunch with S. Presley Blake, co-founder of Friendly Ice Cream and generous friend of the Academy.

Mr. Blake discussed his recently published autobiography, A Friendly Life, telling the students about his early career, his growing franchise, and his strong belief in business ethics and the value or treating customers and employees well.  

Students asked Mr. Blake questions, and he also gave each a signed copy of A Friendly Life.
