2023 Hospitality showcase
Most of our students come from Southern Indiana, and many have never traveled outside of their own counties. We are preparing students for a career in hospitality, and feel strongly that in order to give great customer service or create fantastic food, one must experience those things first hand.
Our ultimate goal is to take a group of our students on a hospitality-culinary tour beyond the state line. Funds raised from the Showcase will be dedicated to a culinary / hospitality focused travel experience.
What is the Showcase?
At the end of the spring semester, we host a graduation celebration for our graduates with food, games, and recognition. This grad party also serves as the final project for the culinary class that cooked for the Yellowwood during the 8 weeks; this year, the class is International Cuisine and the project will focus on street food, with each student hosting their own station to serve the public...you know, street food.
This year, we decided to expand the celebration and make it a fundraiser for our 2024 student trip.
A casual indoor/outdoor gathering with tables to sit or stand at, as well as a chance to walk around and mingle.
Food, desserts, beverages, chef demos, tours of the culinary labs, games. Food will be self serve, but service staff will be on hand.
