League’s Starting Line Up, LCA Edition: Meet Romeo Hernandez

League creates styles that go beyond looking good: they do good, and help make our employees lives better. We are committed to making a difference.

Today we introduce to you Romeo Hernandez, a chef at our League Central America facility. Romeo started with LCA in 2010. “I have been working for League for 7 years. I started after living in the US for 12 years.” 

Romeo hard at work.

When he returned to El Salvador, he was worried about landing a job.  “I started interviewing for different jobs,” he said. “But since I was only educated up to seventh grade, it was very difficult to find work.” Luckily, he reached out to LCA. “I received a call from League saying they wanted to interview me for an open position in the cafeteria. I went in for my interview and I was thrilled to hear about all the opportunities that League employees have, like access to education.”

Romeo didn’t hesitate to take advantage of the education. “Fast forward to today, and I am finishing my high school degree and will begin studying in university next year. I am so happy to be in a place that offers so much to their employees, because outside of League, those opportunities are very difficult to find.”

Romeo also had an unexpected benefit of working at League — he met his wife there! “League has changed my life in so many ways. Not only have I furthered my education, I also met my wife who works at League and we now have a son, a safe place to live, and we have a future full of hope and opportunities.”

Cuties!

Of course we’re thrilled to have Romeo on the LCA team, but he’s grateful to League too. “This is all thanks to League. This is the new El Salvador for me, and anyone who wants to excel.”

Thanks for being part of LCA, Romeo!
