Page 4B EDUCATION Hays Free Press • August 31,2011 Culinary Students Continued from pg. 3B School Briefs Continued from pg. 3B That reference to scholarships is directed toward the annual practice of awarding what are called the "Back Burner Culinafian Awards" to Culinary Arts students who "have represented the program ex- tremely well" over their time there. Georgi noted that not every graduating senior gets one of the awards "because not everybody earns it. It takes leadership, commitment, and (he adds, with just the right note of jest - and seriousness) the ability to wash a lot of dishes and not cry about it!" And what does this popular, but demanding, teacher believe is the most important thing about what his class offers? "It would have to be the hands-on approach and the real-world applica- tion. There's just no other way to teach it- you have to physically do the work and you have to do it right and do it on on time," he says emphatically. Traditionally one for sharing credit with others who play important roles in the success of his program, Georgi points to the Nutrition and Wellness classes taught by Betsy Davis and Karen Mitchell at Lehman and Hays high schools, respectively. Davis and Mitch- ellinsmact their students in awide range of knowledge and skill sets that can easily lead into Culinary Arts. It's all part of the larger picture of Career and Technology Education in HCISD and, while our natural appetites keep our eye on Ryan Georgi's Culinary Arts program, there's a wide array of of- ferings in the department preparing local students for an equally wide array of other professions. Get a taste of the occasional samplings from Culinary Arts when you can. but watch these pages in weeks to come for looks at other CTE offerings.
