Patricia Alexander, a 25-year veteran pharmacy technician at Winn-Dixie store 1329 in Metairie, Louisiana, definitely has a lot to smile about – her son is a finalist on the hit TV singing talent show “American Idol.”

Quentin, a talented New Orleans native, is fighting his way to the top and along the way has made his neighbors, including his mom’s co-workers and the rest of the city’s community , proud of his successful journey.

"New Orleans is such a cultural city with so much talent,” said Pete DeRocha, store 1329 director. “It makes us extremely proud to see one of our own go all the way and represent New Orleans in such a great way.”

Patricia started with the company in 1989 and has been a faithful employee. She said she's very thankful to have her Winn-Dixie family support her son during this exciting time.

“We are so grateful for the tremendous amount of support that we have received every step of the way,” said Alexander. “Quentin’s time on American Idol has been amazing. We know that this is only the beginning for him and we are thrilled with the outpour of love and positive energy.”
