Grilling with a grin

Students who frequent the Ross
School of Business's Seigle Cafe are
0 E probably usedto being greeted by the
smiling face and friendly attitude of
Archie "Chello" Smyers, who works
behind the grill and does whatever
it takes to keep students' stomachs
filled.
Smyers, who has been a regular
at the Business School for the past
three years, said he believes his ami-
able demeanor makes people feel
comfortable around him.
V s k"I think I'm a nice guy," Smy-
ers said. "I am a great communica-
tor and motivator. I get along with
everybody."
Working in food is something
about which Smyers is passionate.

dream of being an Olympic track star
didn't come true, he altered his ambi-
tions and began a career in the food
business.
Smyers has worked for the Nation-
al Guard - based in Lansing - for
the past 13 years. He goes to Lansing
one weekend a month to cook and
was recently promoted.
"I went from being just a regular
cook to running the whole show for
the state of Michigan for food ser-
vice," said Smyers. "That's a dream
job. A lot of people have been there
20 to 25 years and would die tobe in
the position Iam in Lansing."
Smyers said a perk of being in
the military is that he has had the
opportunity to travel to exotic places
including Panama, Costa Rica and
Germany.
Despite his military work and other
accomplishments, Smyers said he
hopes to ultimately run a food facility
like the one at the Business School.
