ACE Mentor Program in San Antonio

The Roosevelt High School students have nicknamed Lake/Flato Architects designer Jeremy Fields “Simon” — as in the feared “American Idol” judge — for his blunt critiques of their drawings for a new, cooler cafeteria.

But the nine students don’t flinch when he points out another weakness.

“The kitchen’s in the center. What’s tough about that?” Fields said.

Responses ring out: “There’s no access to outside for food delivery!” “And trash!”

“Maybe we should move it to the outside wing. The view of the mall is not that great anyway,” suggests junior Loram Rodriguez.

It is the final moments of the first local ACE Mentorship Program, a nine-month series that pairs architects, construction professionals and engineers with students at John Jay and Roosevelt high schools. Students will present their construction plans and learn the winners of three $2,000 scholarships during a dinner May 10 at the Marriott Plaza San Antonio downtown.
