BRONX, NY – Six students in the Harry S Truman High School Culinary Arts Program have qualified to compete for a share of a large major scholarship program.

The Careers Through The Culinary Arts Program in Manhattan offers a college scholarship competition for culinary, pastry, hospitality, nutrition and travel-and-tourism majors with prizes ranging from $1,500 cash scholarship  to full college tuition at the school of their  choice.

This year the following students made it into the preliminary competition: Brayden Boscio, Khristian Goland, Geannaby Hernandez, Miguel Diaz, Sammantha Solomon and Danielle Murrain.   These students will be competing against almost a hundred students from all over the state for the few available  scholarships.  The preliminary competition is on February 4.  In that round, students will have to make two french-rolled omelets each and an elegant cucumber salad.

Last year Jodi Ann Williams won a $120,000 Johnson and Wales full tuition scholarship resulting from her participation in the culinary program.  Best wishes to this year’s competitors.
