St. John Vianney High School teams up with Pretzel Boy’s to keep store staff employed and support food pantry.
St. John Vianney High School in Kirkwood, Missouri has teamed up with locally-owned Pretzel Boy's for a special delivery to all Vianney students, faculty, and staff the week of March 30. This is a gift from Vianney President Mike Loyet '77 to acknowledge the extraordinary work of our school community under extraordinary conditions. The owner of Pretzel Boy's, Tim Garvey, says Vianney’s 572 delivery orders means he can keep his staff employed longer in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Garvey plans to pay it forward by donating more than 1,000 pretzels in Vianney's name to an area food pantry.
St. John Vianney High School moved to distance learning on March 24, following the protocols shared by local, regional, and national authorities. The school’s mission since its founding in 1960 is to form young men for spiritual, academic and personal excellence in the Catholic, Marianist tradition. This partnership with Pretzel Boy's allows the school to support a local business while supporting its community.
