Kenton Latham, Peet’s Coffee tuition reimbursement program | Oregon State Ecampus

October 19, 2019

My name is Kenton Latham. I’m a retail facilities partner here at Peet’s Coffee and I am officially a Beaver. I’ve been with Peet’s Coffee for 10 years. I started as a barista and then I got into the facilities department. We had an all hands meeting at Peet’s announcing that there was a relationship with Oregon State. I know that so many people are trying to balance working as many hours as possible to pay for their school. This is that opportunity to balance that and have that access to education without all of the stress of trying to commute to the campus and trying to find a class that will fit. I’m passionate about finishing my degree because I put so much work into it and because of cost, I just couldn’t find a way to make that work. I feel that this investment is really, it shows the passion that Peet’s has for its people. I definitely think that this is an opportunity for me to finish what I started, to step up to the challenge.
