Escoffier Scholarship Winner Announced
Escoffier Online International Culinary Academy has named this July’s scholarship winner! On July 9th, Sharon Elizabeth Wegner was chosen to receive a full scholarship for the program of her choice – she chose to join the online culinary program! Sharon participated in this contest because she always wanted to attend culinary school.
“I’ve wanted to attend culinary school for years. Being raised in an Italian family where life evolves around food, I learned at an early age to appreciate fresh, home-cooked meals. We lived on an apricot ranch where we had access to a wide variety of fresh fruit and vegetables. I love all things relating to food – the colors, the aromas, the textures, and of course, the taste. Being given this gift from the Escoffier Online Culinary Academy is a dream come true. As a nutritional consultant, I teach people how to make healthier food and lifestyle choices. I will use this experience to further my passion, and to teach people how to cook healthy family-centered meals,” stated Sharon.
LearnToCook.com also picked a winner for the $250 American Express gift card giveaway. Chef Mireille was chosen for this prize. Congratulations to both of our winners!
