6 months and counting
Nov. 22, 2010
Class 36 graduate Johnnie Frazier was back at Friendship Trays Monday, and Chef Ron Ahlert gathered staff and students together to present Frazier his knife set. The knife set, a gift supported by Piedmont Natural Gas, is traditionally awarded to students who have completed six months of employment in the culinary industry after graduation. Frazier said jobs have been very difficult to find during the recession, but that he's doing prep and buffet work at the Great Wolf Lodge in Concord on weekends, and picking up non-culinary work like boxing up batteries the rest of the week.
