During a recent session of the Ohio House of Representatives, State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) presented a House Resolution to the Cuyahoga Valley Career Center Culinary Student Management Team. The team of five students took first place in the management portion at the 2015 National Ohio ProStart Invitational.

ProStart is a national industry certification culinary arts and restaurant management program for high school juniors and seniors. Local foodservice industry representatives participate on advisory boards to develop the best and brightest talent into tomorrow’s restaurant leaders.

The student management teams presented a verbal and visual plan for a new restaurant concept, including building layout, menu, pricing, and marketing, which was judged by a panel of foodservice professionals from business and academia. The management team of students included Stefani Tolbert, Aaron Sharpe, Ian Meisner, Natasha Daniels and Tessa Ackley under the guidance of veteran ProStart Instructor Barbara Hummer who is retiring from teaching at the end of this school year.

“The amount of hard work and dedication these students put into perfecting their presentation is commendable ,” said Rep Anielski. “I wish CVCC the best of luck in all their future endeavors and hope to see another national award next year!”
