Micro blog from student Leisa Maddox

An Act of Kindness, A Moment of Your Time CAN Change a Person’s Life!

While debating on whether to enroll in The Chef’s Academy, I stopped to ask a student her opinion of the school. This person took a moment of her time (well, more like 20 minutes), to tell me how much she loved the school and that it was a great choice she made! She also offered her assistance to me while attending school! If it had not been for her taking a bit of her time out for me, I do not know if I would be here in school today. She is my mentor and I am very grateful for her! So, do know that your kindness and consideration of others can change a person’s life! Thank you Faye for your kindness, support and friendship!

Micro-blog from student Austin Davis

If you guys don’t know me by now my name is Austin Davis. I am in the wonderful HRM (Hospitality/Restaurant Management) program and I enjoy every second of it thanks to my fantastic class mates as well as Ms. Jokima and Ms. Gwen. If you ever see me in the halls feel free to talk to me about anything you would like. So on February 20th I turned 19, granted it’s not 18 or 21, but it’s still another year that I was able to be alive. I didn’t do a whole lot for my birthday, no extravagant parties or anything I just hung out with family and friends. I will say, however, the best part was on Saturday night I went cosmic bowling with my father, step mother, half sister, brother, soon to be sister-in-law, my roommate Forrest, and my girl friend, and they counted down to my birthday over the intercom and it made me feel really special. I also felt a lot of love from everyone who sent me birthday wishes on Facebook. To all those who are reading this, I would just like to thank you for being apart of a wonderful school, I truly do love The Chef’s Academy and I am glad I made the choice to attend. Hopefully I will see some of you in the hallways!
