From John Rhodes former Raleigh Rep for Lake Norman and Mint Hill area resident.
Of Special Interest to Clear Creek Elementary, Northeast Jr HS, and Independence HS Patriot alumni
…….so there we all were probably enjoying after lunch ice cream sandwiches after filing out of the cafeteria and onto the playground at Clear Creek Elementary, that bastion of higher learning and knowledge located in eastern Mecklenburg county on Albemarle Road just east of Wilgrove, North Carolina. I can’t be sure, but I think I recall one of our fellow classmates, Ritchie Allison, once say, Hey guys, there’s a great future in pizza!…….
Today that former Clear Creek Elementary student who grew up in Mint Hill, and attended Independence HS Home of the Patriots, is now the CEO of one of the world’s most recognized brands, Domino’s Pizza.
So happy for and proud of his accomplishments, business leadership, and successes through years of hard work, dedication, and persistence. Always a kind good natured fellow with a kind word for others and a jovial laugh as I recall.
What a great story about Richard “Ritch“ Allison CEO of Domino’s Pizza and the local North Carolina connection.
