Culinary classes at Gulf/Franklin campus this fall

Beginning this fall, students will have the opportunity to enroll in culinary classes at the Gulf/Franklin Campus.  These courses are designed to prepare students for employment as a chef’s apprentice. In addition to gaining the knowledge and skills needed to become employed as a chef’s apprentice, students who complete the chef’s apprentice certificate can continue their education and receive an associate of science degree in culinary management.

The first culinary courses offered by the Gulf/Franklin Campus will begin Aug. 25.  For additional information regarding the culinary program, please contact Loretta Costin at 227-9670, ext. 5503 or by email at
