BELDEN, Miss. (WTVA) - A program at Itawamba Community College is cooking up the next batch of culinary artists.
The college has a 4-week adult program which offers students an opportunity to intern in a restaurant and obtain the certifications needed to hit the work field.
“We are in our second week of our four-week course, and they are really excited. The students are doing an internship at Woody’s, and they really enjoy it," said Christy Scheuer, an instructor.
Along with this program, ICC holds a “Culinary Camp for Kids.” Middle and high school students learn the skills needed to become a culinary artist and even life skills.
“If you mess up one time, keep going," said Miracle Bogan, a participant.
This year’s menu included baked chicken, cauliflower mash, buttered rolls, and more.
