at 2016 Texas Restaurant Association Expo  
 

NCHS Restaurant Management Team August 24, 2016 | Yes Minded | Over the summer, the New Caney High School Restaurant Management Team attended the 2016 Texas Restaurant Association Expo and was honored for their achievements.

 

For team members Haley Lewis, Yarumi Guerrero, Mysterie Roberson and Kayla Gebauer, 2016 has been an exciting year. The Restaurant Management Team was honored at the expo for being the 2016 Texas ProStart State Champions and winning the National title. The team placed 1st out of 43 teams across the nation and showcased the New Caney High School Culinary Arts program and ProStart.

 

During the two-day expo, the students were recognized at a presidential gala and ran the Texas Restaurant Association Education Foundation booth where they shared their experiences with ProStart and their restaurant concept.  Later, the students volunteered at the annual Lonestar Bash held to raise scholarship money.

 

Two members of the team, Haley Lewis and Yarumi Guerrero, as well as Lead Instructor, Cherie Busch, were featured in a three-part publicity video series sharing their experiences with the Texas ProStart curriculum and competition.

 

The students are thankful for all the opportunities and experiences ProStart has afforded them, including college scholarships and the ability to make industry contacts.
