Fun from Around the World

Thanks YBA and Culinary Arts

The aroma of foods from around the world filled the library today as teachers took part in the annual luncheon hosted by YBA. The event featured foods from Asia, Mexico, Italy, Great Brittain, and of coarse, Texas. Teachers were able to feast on everything from bar-b-que to egg rolls and everything in between. This was not only a spread of appreciation but an opportunity for young business associates to put all that they have learned into practice.

“This luncheon made me understand work ethic,” Anna Grace Hammer said. “Some of the jobs are fun, like picking the theme and making the invitations, but others require lots of work, like cooking and serving. In this Career Prep class, Mrs. Whitt teaches us that in the real world you have to do things you don’t like sometimes. You have to do what is required and have to smile. It is all about attitude and being responsible to your boss and crew.”

Faculty members were appreciative of the feast and enjoyed the pampering.

“These eggrolls are delicious,” Telia Washington said. “I especially like dressing from Sumo as well.”

Shelby Kirby thanked all the faculty for their hard work and drew for door prizes, coupons to The SPill, as a special treat.

“We just wanted to thank you for coming and let you know you are appreciated,” Kirby said. “You have allowed us to really see what it takes to put on a luncheon from beginning to end.”

Students learned what it means to serve and be hospitable. One student came around and serviced tables for drinks while other refilled plates and asked about the service and the food. This practicum, enriched by the collaboration with Mrs. Rhetta Collier and the Culinary Arts class, allowed students to learn while doing.
