MISD's Culinary Arts Students Named Top in the Nation
Posted 05/14/2019 04:13PM

Ben Barber Students at National ProStartStudents in Ben Barber Innovation Academy’s culinary arts program were named the top in the nation for their restaurant management skills.

The restaurant management team advanced to the National ProStart Invitational in Washington, D.C. on May 8 and placed first overall in the competition.

"Winning is a dream come true for the students, myself, this entire program at Ben Barber and our school," said Chef David Roberson. "Our kids stayed committed and now they are National Champions. Working with the Texas Restaurant Association, and the Texas Restaurant Association Education Foundation has been priceless because they have opened many doors of professional opportunities for our students to have jobs in the near future."

ProStart is a nationally recognized program that prepares students for careers in the restaurant and food service industry. The Texas program reaches over 20,000 students from more than 255 high schools each year.

 The Ben Barber students earned their place in the National competition after competing in the Texas ProStart State Invitational March 8-9 in San Antonio. The restaurant management team earned first place in the state competition and the culinary arts team finished in third place.
