Culinary students “treat” School Board members

When the Haywood County School Board met on Tuesday, January 9, in addition to taking care of business, they enjoyed several snacks made by students from the Haywood High School Culinary Arts classes. The students also made a presentation about their classes and lessons and expressed excitement and appreciation about what they are learning.

Teaching the class is Kim Marble, and the students are Raven Harville, Ontario Woods, Martin Welch and Alex Williams.

There are four years of Culinary Arts classes in which each year’s curriculum builds skills on what they learned the year before. The students were very interested in the possibilities that the classes can prepare them for a future in the food industry. Some of the jobs they can explore are food stylist, caterer, nutritionist, executive chef, food scientist, and personal chef.

In other business, school board members agreed to approve the disposal of surplus computers and equipment and to auction off a list of buses and other vehicles that the school can no longer use. The approved budget amendments, and Superintendent Hassell announced that the mid-month luncheon would be at Haywood Middle School on January 23.

The next meeting will be held on Thursday, February 8, at 6 p.m.
