Columbia Area Career Center cleans up at State (again)

Great news from the Culinary Arts program at the Columbia Area Career Center:

We are proud to announce the results of the Missouri SkillsUSA State competition this weekend.

The Columbia Area Career Center had all four competitors place.  This is the tenth consecutive year that the Career Center has had a state champion for Culinary Arts.

Will Kinney – 1st place Culinary Arts (RBHS Senior)

Mallory Barnes – 1st place Commercial Baking (RBHS Junior)

Hailey King – 2nd place Culinary Arts (RBHS Junior)

Ashleigh Johnson – 3rd place Commercial Baking (RBHS Senior)

These students did a tremendous job and have spent countless hours practicing.

Will and Mallory are going to continue on and attend the Skills USA National Convention the last week of June for their shot at the national title.

We will keep everyone informed about upcoming fundraisers to help send Will and Mallory to Nationals.

Thank you for your support,

Brook, Carri and Jeff

  1. This is such an awesome program all the way around! Even without the competition awards, I, for one, am very proud to have such a fine program with such an outstanding faculty as a part of the Columbia Public School system.

    The students who have won put in a great deal of time and effort as well, and definately deserve the credit for their skills.

    I have taken an adult knife skills class with Brook. It was exceptional. Also, I have purchased sausage and other food items from the center. I have not been disappointed.
