Sharyl Thompson grew up assisting her family at catered events. She attended Johnson & Wales University where she completed internships in hotels and restaurants. Upon graduation, she worked in the kitchen for a family-owned catering company and cooked at a private country club. Sharyl is proud to work at BC Dining because the department is filled with talented employees who enjoy sharing their stories through food and interacting with customers. At BC, Sharyl says, one of the goals is to feed the minds of others, which is done creatively in various venues throughout campus. Personally, Sharyl realizes the importance of providing the students a nurturing environment. There is comfort, familiarity and stability in food. Sharyl sees this firsthand during her favorite BC event, Commencement, when family and friends celebrate and share their memorable experiences in the dining halls. She hopes for the future that BC will continue to inspire the minds of others, share their cultural stories through food, and have conversations at the dining table. As Sharyl says, each dining hall provides an opportunity for unity. While not working within Dining, she is the Programming Chair of Black Faculty Staff and Administrators Association at BC, on the Boston College Woods College Alumni Council, and Alumni Mentors at BC. Outside of BC, Sharyl enjoys cooking and traveling.
