We are pleased to announce that John Nesteruk and Kaitlyn Sasseville each received MVSB’s Culinary Arts Center Scholarship for 2016. Nesteruk and Sasseville are recent graduates of the Huot Regional Technical Center/MVSB Culinary Arts Program as well as graduates of Franklin High School and Gilford High School respectively.
Nesteruk and Sasseville both plan to study culinary arts in the fall. Nesteruk will be attending Lakes Region Community College and Sasseville will be attending Southern New Hampshire University.
MVSB was instrumental in the support of the Huot Regional Technical Education Center and its Culinary Arts program, Laconia High School’s capital campaign in 2012. MVSB’s financial commitment of $100,000, helped fund a state-of-the-art educational facility, kitchens and a flag-ship restaurant. The Center provides hands-on education for students aspiring to join the hospitality industry throughout the Lakes Region. The creation of this scholarship continues the MVSB tradition of community support while creating a financial opportunity for students to advance their culinary studies.
The MVSB Culinary Arts Center Scholarship is an award presented to deserving graduating seniors who embody the values of honesty, leadership and academic excellence and are seeking to continue their education in culinary arts or a related field.
