After Dylan Bacon finished high school, he had no idea what he wanted to do with his life. So he took a minimum wage job at a sub shop, working in the back kitchen. But he knew he wanted more.
He started classes at his local community college, trying to figure out some sort of direction. He knew he at least wanted to be outside and working with his hands.
He found a job at Historic London Town & Gardens. At London Town, Dylan fell in love with the gardens. This became a place where he could be outside, learn new things, and truly make a difference. He says, “This has been hands-down the favorite job I’ve ever had.”
When Dylan started at the community college, he figured he’d just get his Associate’s degree. But after discovering London Town, Dylan knew he wanted more. He transferred to Delaware State University to pursue a four-year degree in horticulture. Last semester, he made Dean’s List. Now he’s even considering going for his Master’s degree.
We are grateful for all that Dylan has accomplished at London Town. While we were sorry to lose him, we’re excited to see him pursue his passions. We can’t wait to see where he’ll end up. Who knows – maybe it’ll even be back at London Town one day. But if not, we know Dylan is going to succeed wherever he goes.
Please donate today to make sure that London Town can continue its work in education and preservation. We can only be a place that inspires passion with your help. Thank you for your donation. Thank you for helping more Dylans.
