Culinary scholarship is gravy for determined cooking student
Okanagan College culinary arts student Dayna Duckworth-Dolan was more than a little surprised this month when she learned that she had won one of the three $1,500 B.C. Hospitality Foundation Scholarships selected by the Chefs’ Table Society of British Columbia and sponsored by SilverBirch Hotels & Resorts.
“Overwhelmed, excited, shocked and amazed” is the way the composed Professional Cook Level 2 student explains her reaction. “I didn’t even know I had been nominated until a few days before when Chef Bernard (Casavant) let me know that I was among those being considered.”
