LRCC chef visits Inter-Lakes students

MEREDITH — On Monday, Nov. 6, seventh-grade students at Inter-Lakes Middle Tier were treated to a fabulous pasta buffet freshly made by Chef Patrick Hall from Lakes Region Community College. He whipped up delicious pans full of chicken alfredo, pasta creme-rosa, and spaghetti alla putanesca. Heather Clogston, Family and Consumer Science teacher at Inter-Lakes, wanted to give her students an opportunity to see a professional chef in action and to ask questions about this exciting career.

Chef Hall has been visiting Inter-Lakes for the past several years to share his love of cooking with students and explain to them how he became involved with the culinary arts. This connection between the Community College and Inter-Lakes students was made possible by the Greater Meredith Program’s Career Partnerships Program. The mission of the Career Partnerships Program is to connect students and businesses, give students exposure to careers, give businesses the opportunity to share their expertise, and foster relationships between businesses and students. The career partnerships program is always looking for new business professionals to share their talents with Inter-Lakes students.
