December 29, 2008

A team of students from the Culinary Arts Program at the Washington County Technical High School (WCTHS) provided catering services to Leadership Washington County at a holiday party last week.

The program prepares students for careers in the hospitality industry.

"The food received rave reviews, as did the level of customer service," said Cindy Kalkbrenner, executive director of Leadership Washington County, in a prepared release. "I'd like to use the WCTHS students for every event we host. They are that good."

The menu included steak au poivre, hot crab and artichoke dip with fresh baguette and cooked and vegetable sushi, along with desserts.

Washington County Technical High School offers 27 different academic courses and 15 different career and technology programs. These programs prepare students for professional technical careers based on current industry skill standards. Enrollment is open to qualified 11th- and 12th-grade students, and tuition-paying adults.

Jeffrey E. Stouffer, principal of WCTHS, said in the release that "Many of the successful workers, business persons, and leaders in our community are past graduates of WCTHS programs. Employers want young professionals who can read a technical manual, write a report, communicate with supervisors and co-workers, and use problem-solving skills to make wise decisions and I am proud to say that the students who graduate from WCTHS can do all of those things."
