Trimble Tech Grad Accepted to Top-Rated Culinary School
From Emeril Legasse to Tyler Florence, some of the top chefs in the country developed their craft at Johnson & Wales University’s College of Culinary Arts. And that is where a very excited Nadia Santiago is now headed. The 2012 Trimble Tech graduate has been accepted to the college’s Providence, Rhode Island campus.
Nadia will work toward a degree in Culinary Arts with an emphasis in Baking and Pastry. She is attending the college with the help of two scholarships – one from the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America and another from the ProStart program.
Joseph Flink, Trimble Tech’s Gold Seal Programs of Choice/Academic Coordinator, said Nadia worked hard to earn the scholarships. He also credited Culinary Arts teacher Natasha Bruton for pushing students to do their best.
“To have a student accepted into a top tier culinary school is a compliment to the dedication of the teacher and the students,” said Flink.
