Johnson and Wales Students Visit Foods II Classes
On Tuesday April 28th, Kim Garza(Class of 2014) and Alice Starnes(Class of 2011) visited Ms. Geer's Honors Foods II class. Kim and Alice discussed their experiences at Johnson and Wales University and the importance of doing well in school. They also stressed the important role their Foods classes have played in their pursuit of higher education. Both Alice and Kim were able to save thousands of dollars in tuition due to taking Foods I and Foods II class at Monroe High. They were not required to take the Nutrition class or the Sanitation class at J & W due to earning a high grade in Foods I and earning the ServSafe certification in Foods II. Alice was able to graduate in 3 1/2 years instead of 4 years. She completed internships at Hilton Head Island and Disneyworld plus the past 2 years she has spent a week in Augusta, GA cooking for the golfers during the Master tournament. She is currently employed at Rolling Hills Country Club, a job that Ms. Geer was able to help secure for her. Kim is currently completing her Freshman year at J & W. Kim and Alice brought a gift to the two students with the highest grades on their ServSafe Exams. Thank you to Kim and Alice for giving back to MHS.
