We would also like to congratulate Kenzie Wilbur, along with her team, on a 4th pace finish for their table top creation in the Michigan Pro Start Invitational. The theme for this year’s design competition was “Mitten Made.” Drawing upon Michigan’s history and culture for inspiration, students were required to present four main components including development of a menu, creation of a table setting, presentation of the table and the team’s ability to answer questions about their table using critical thinking skills. The table looks amazing! Great job.

Congratulations to our RPHS CTC students that competed and won first and second place at the recent Michigan ProStart Competition, an annual culinary and management competition hosted by the Michigan Hospitality Foundation. More than 400 high school students, representing 28 Michigan schools across the state, competed in the The competition helps students gain firsthand experience in critical industry skills like food safety, business management, menu development and marketing. Using only two butane burners for cooking, students had to prepare an entrée, side option, and beverage in line with the National Restaurant Association’s Kids’ Live Well and USDA menu criteria for nutrition. The meals also had to pass the test of their target audience: kids. Placing first in the state for nutrition, and earning a combined $28,000 in scholarships, was Eric Wildfong and his team. The team’s winning meal was a “Panda Power Box,” which featured Asian-inspired foods including brown rice, orange sauce, white beam omelets, carrots, cucumbers, and dragon fruit. The students also paired the meal with a delicious iced bamboo tea and pineapple juice. The students provided recipes, menu price and a nutritional analysis for the meal, which was judged by industry professionals, as well as child judges, who scored the meals for presentation and taste to ensure the teams were appealing to their target audience. Placing second in the same category was the Taco Fiesta menu created by teammates Ajay Bell and team. Their meal featured mini tacos, lettuce, tomato, sweet peppers, cilantro, scallions, lime, and Creamy Fiesta Sauce. Each teammate received a $1,000 scholarship The first-place teams for the culinary and management categories of the competition move onto the National ProStart® Invitational. In addition, more than $500,000 in scholarships were available this year to students seeking to continue their post-secondary education in hospitality-related fieds. Way to go Eric, Ajay, and teams. Way to go Rockets!

One business shared in a follow up e-mail, "From what I have experienced with prior high school age career fairs, I thought the Reeths-Puffer students were more engaged, asking better questions and more interested than typical for this age group." Great job ROCKETS! Thank you Webb Chemical, Trinity Health, Local 174, Supreme Machined Products, Erdman Machine Co., Northern Machine, Webb, Eagle CNC Technologies, and Eagle Group.
