Greater Montgomery Restaurant Association visits Conroe ISD's culinary arts facility
The Executive Committee of the Greater Montgomery County Restaurant Association recently visited the new Conroe ISD culinary arts facility at Conroe High School.
According to a press release, the delegation was greeted by students and Don Stockton, superintendent of schools. They enjoyed student-made bruschetta, crab claws and goat cheese appetizers as part of the visit.
The restaurant association visitors were able to witness the practical, hands-on learning involved in the culinary industry through the new district program.
The GMCRA donated knifes to the program, according to the release.
"Our goal is for this to be a mutually beneficial partnership, and I cannot think of any better link to industry for us," said Bill Prisock, teacher of career and culinary arts at the school, in the release. "We are all thankful and excited to have GMCRA support."
Students in the program learn all aspects of the food service industry and the professional skills necessary for employability, customer service and an understanding of the dining experience. The Conroe culinary arts program is offered on home campuses to 10th- through 11th-grade students who have completed classes in restaurant management or lifetime wellness and nutrition. The new Culinary Arts Program II is offered to 11th- and 12th-grade students at Conroe High School.
Conroe High School is at 3200 W. Davis Blvd, Conroe.
