Culinary Arts Management Team wins first-place in state
AMORY – The Amory High School Culinary Arts Management Team won first-place in the Mississippi ProStart Invitational state competition in Jackson and will now compete in the National ProStart Competition on April 19 in Baltimore, Md.
Last year was the first time Culinary Arts competed in the Mississippi competition where the program placed second in the culinary portion. This year was the first time the team competed in the management side.
The management team members were T’Angela Freeman, Destyne Galloway, Kim Haron, Harli Benton and Chelsey Harlow.
“I am so proud of them. The kids have already won scholarships to several different culinary schools, including Johnson and Wales, Louisiana Culinary Institute, Mississippi University for Women, Northeast Community College, International Culinary Institute, New England Culinary Schools and others. It was a total of over $56,000,” said Culinary Arts Instructor Dianne Young.
Young said the students just have to choose where they want to go. If they place in the top five at nationals, there will be even more money awarded.
The Culinary Arts Management Team has to raise $6,000 for the trip to national competition in Maryland. They have six weeks to raise the money.
Anyone who would like to make a donation for the students to attend the National ProStart Competition in Baltimore can do so by making the check out to Amory Culinary Arts Management Team and mailing it to Amory Career & Technical Center, in care of Dianne Young, 1006 Sam Haskell Circle, Amory, MS 38821.
