Becky Vega has come a long way. When she dropped out of Garfield High School two years ago, Vega went to work as an elevator operator, earning the minimum wage, at the historic Bradbury Building located downtown at 3rd Street and Broadway. Today, the 19-year-old is manager of a restaurant in the building and earns enough to have moved out of her parents' home and have her own apartment. Vega is typical of the staff at Bradbury's 1893 Cos., which is 100% owned by Terry McKelvey.
