Denny: “I was curious about learning to cook different types of food.”
Lamar: “I’ve always been interested in cooking and thought this would help me gain better cooking skills.”
Q: What do you hope to learn in the program that you haven’t yet?
Denny: “I’m hoping to take away anything I can.”
Lamar: “I’m excited to learn more about the in’s and out’s of a business and how to make it successful.”
