“There are top notch culinary arts programs in the technical high schools and today we have the seniors from Prince Tech,” said Rep. Cook. “I am hoping that as we move forward, this will be one of many opportunities to have the culinary students showcase their talents at the capitol.”
Graduating students from Hartford’s A. I. Prince Technical High School’s were recognized during a session of the House of Representatives for their academic and culinary achievements.
“This was Rep. Cook’s idea to showcase the student’s skills in the culinary arts. She knows the work of all our trades so well,” said Patricia Ciccone, CT Technical High School Superintendent. “The seniors were thrilled and excited to be recognized before the House of Representatives.”
