ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Gov. Rick Scott has harkened back to his roots again with his second "workday."
Scott helped prepare and serve breakfast and lunch Friday at Audubon Park Elementary School in Orlando.
Now a multimillionaire, the former hospital chain executive said when growing up in a struggling family he earned meals by working in the cafeteria.
The Republican governor did his first workday at a Tampa doughnut shop similar to one where he got his start in business.
Scott borrowed the workday idea from former Gov. Bob Graham.
Scott has visited charter schools, which he strongly advocates, since taking office in January.
But his visit Friday was his first as governor to a traditional public school.
While Scott was busy in the kitchen, his wife, Anne, visited a technology focused classroom.
