CKTC Culinary Arts students Veronica Smith and Sariah Pemberton, both of Anadarko, recently competed at the state Prostart Invitational Competition in Norman, Oklahoma. Student teams demonstrate their business acumen and culinary skill, and the winning teams earn scholarships and honors. The top teams earn the opportunity to compete against the very best teams from other states at the National ProStart Invitational in April.
“They didn’t place in the top three, but the experience in itself is a big deal,” said Instructor Rick Stanton. “They put their skills to the test in front of industry leaders in a highly competitive environment. That is not an easy thing to do, and I am proud of them.”
Smith and Pemberton prepared Ribeye Steak, Stuffed Portobella Mushrooms and a Pineapple Bowl Fruit Salad for the contest.For almost half a century, CKTC has provided career training, business and industry services and leadership programs to a rural district in southwest Oklahoma.
