Meadowcreek High School’s principal, Dr. Tommy T. Welch, runs his school with the belief that students cannot become what they cannot envision.
“For a person’s ability to imagine,” he explains, “they need to be exposed to as many opportunities as possible. You need to go beyond the walls of the classroom.”
Meadowcreek High School students enrolled in the culinary internship program, led by Chef Simone Byron, do just that. Of the 300-plus students enrolled in the four-year culinary arts curriculum, select students qualify for an internship program their senior year.
