ABSTRACT
The article features Pavel Matustik, of the Santa Clarita Valley School Food Services Agency in California. Nearly 40 years ago, Matustik learned the meaning of repression, as he watched Soviet troops march into his native Czechoslovakia to put down that country's flirtation with democracy. When he arrived in southern California, it took less than a week for the one-time restaurant manager to land a new foodservice job.
