Henderson Castle in Kalamazoo, Michigan (pictured) is known for its gourmet cuisine. Master chef and owner/operator François Moyet of this Diamond Collection inn is using his culinary skills to pay it forward. He has taken under his wing Tony Nichols-Johnson, a profoundly deaf 19-year-old whose dream is to become a professional chef.
Click this link to watch a video and learn about their story. You can see how François is helping Tony reach his dreams in the kitchen.
As Tony explains in the video, he simply wants to do what he loves and earn a living through having his own restaurant, and making it a place where deaf people can feel comfortable. This innkeeper is generously taking the time to help him reach his goals. Enjoy the video!
