Marion County High School Family and Consumer Science teacher Jessica Montgomery has been awarded a grant from the Kentucky Department of Education to attend the 2018 CAFÉ Leadership Conference June 14-16, 2018 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin at the Milwaukee Area Technical College.
Montgomery is one of only two teachers in the state to receive funding to attend the conference.
“[The conference] involves a lot of hands-on culinary experiences,” Montgomery said.
Additionally, Montgomery will present at a conference in Louisville in July based on her experience at the CAFÉ Leadership Conference.
According to its website, the CAFE Leadership Conference, “strives to create an environment that connects culinary educators with the culinary industry.”
