Culinary Cooks for Chancellor Carranza
On November 28, 2018, Chancellor Carranza visited Long Island City High School for the monthly Panel for Educational Policy (PEP) Meeting. Prior to the meeting Chancellor Caranaza, PEP Members, Principal Selenikas and Community School Team Members sat down to have dinner. A delectable menu of items including Shrimp Scampi, Chicken Florentine, String Beans, Salad, and Foccacia, and Dessert were prepared by the students in the Culinary Program of the Career & Technical Education (CTE) Program.
The dinner service was presented as a buffet for all attendees to enjoy. Senior Culinary Student Keven* described the experience as “unforgettable.” He stated, “It’s always fun and exciting to cater for different people, especially for someone who is looked up to in the education world.”
Other Culinary Students expressed pleasant surprise about being included in preparing a meal for the Chancellor of NYC Public Schools. Senior Melissa* said she wouldn’t have dreamed of being asked to participate in such a high-profile event. She state, “The best part of the event was just seeing everyone enjoy the food and finishing their plates…I never would have thought that they would enjoy it so much.” Fellow Student Roseli remarked that “It was a great opportunity to be acknowledge by someone like the Chancellor.” In addition, the students had the opportunity to meet the Chancellor and tell them about their experience at LICHS and what they love about the Culinary & Hospitality CTE program.
The CTE Culinary Students were entrusted with a great deal of responsibility to cook and host this dinner, and rose to the occasion. They also acknowledge the support of their teachers Ms. Devito and Ms. Parker as “the backbone of this event.”
