FREMONT - The Andersons Inc. Charitable Foundation has approved a $10,000 grant for Terra State Community College to support equipment in the college's new culinary lab.
The lab will be a training tool for students in the recently revived hospitality management program at Terra State.
"We are so appreciative of (The Andersons plant nutrient operations manager - North Central Ohio) Dean Anstead for coming to tour Terra and helping us through this process," said Lisa Williams, senior vice president for Institutional Advancement and interim executive director of the Terra College Foundation.
"The impact of this generous donation will have a ripple effect on our students for years to come. Private donations like this grant from The Andersons are critical to our programs and our students."
The culinary lab is part of the upcoming renovation of Building B on campus. Construction is slated to begin in November and should be completed by January.
The lab will consist of all basic kitchen equipment, like a professional range, ovens, steamers, etc., as well as some new, more industry-cutting-edge features like a combination oven and video for the chef's demonstration area.
In addition to learning the basics necessary to run a professional kitchen, hospitality management majors will complete a curriculum which includes business, marketing, management and hospitality courses.
Graduates of this program will be prepared for an entry level management position within a resort, hotel, banquet center, casino or restaurant.
They may also choose to transfer to a four-year program to pursue a bachelor's degree.
