Earlier this month, Antioch High School’s hospitality program in the Academy of Hospitality and Marketing was named to the 2014-2015 Elite 50, an exclusive group of high schools and career and technical schools from across the country, by Sullivan University’s National Center for Hospitality Studies.
The Elite 50 is comprised of high schools and tech centers that excel in the areas of culinary arts, baking and pastry arts, and/ or hospitality management. Some are state and national competition winners from ProStarts, SkillsUSA and Family Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA). Sullivan University also factors in schools with strong hospitality enrollment and influence in the community.
Additional criteria for receiving this recognition include: an original recipe with photos or a restaurant management design; two essays from students on the topic, “Why I want to pursue a career in hospitality?”; and additional information about the school’s program. Further considerations where given to schools that operate a restaurant or offer catering services.
Congratulations Antioch High School and the Academy of Hospitality and Marketing!
