Alumni Stories

Jeff Plumer '00

Taking a CFHS marketing class sparked an interest in computers for Jeff Plumer. "I remember being very involved in the creation of media and utilizing the Macs extensively," says Jeff. "Though I wasn't the best at photoshop or PowerPoint, the class and teacher Dale Fletcher made me a subject matter expert with Apple Products. This passion followed me through college as I took my Green iMac to school freshman year at ASU."

"My senior year of college I started working at the Apple Store in Chandler AZ," remembers Jeff. "I have worn many hats at Apple including B2B Sales, Operations in Cupertino, and today I am a Business Manager for Apple Retail."
