Lowndes County, GA -
The hit CBS show Undercover Boss's most recent episode, called Epic Employees, will feature some of the most popular guests from years past. That includes Albert Sandford who was first on the hit show in 2010, training who he thought was an unemployed auto worker. It turned out to be Joel Manby, CEO of Herschend Family Entertainment which owns Wild Adventures.
Sandford said "it was unreal. It was a whole day of training like I would any other day. And so I didn't think anything of it until about a week later when we were called to the corporate offices and at that time found out exactly what was going on."
That was just the beginning for Sandford. He's since moved to Valdosta and taken part in the company's Share It Forward program, which gave him a full scholarship to Valdosta State University's business program.
Micha Hogan also works at Wild Adventures. She said "Albert is one of these success stories of the Share It Forward program that helps out all of the employees throughout Herschend Family Entertainment whether it's financial needs, marriage counseling, scholarships or even single parent programs."
Undercover Boss airs on CBS every Friday at 8PM.
