Teens Prepare Thanksgiving

Tori Adams helped with a Thanksgiving dinner for those in need in conjunction with the Salvation Army, UofU kitchens and Chartwells (the 11th largest food company in the world) and was interviewed on ABC 4 news that aired on Thanksgiving.  Here is the video clip of her interview!  She represented Roy High well very well, receiving a great praise from the chefs there.  Because of her hard work she was offered a position working with the head chef of Chartwells – Chef Peter Hodgsen.  Not many get offered a position with Chef Peter.  She is very humble about the experience and is shy about the publicity but I wanted to let you all know how amazing she is!  She was also featured on the National ProStart Program Facebook page yesterday as recognition for how ProStart Students “Give Back”.
