School expands catering program

GLASGOW, Ky. – Glasgow High School has been operating a fully functional catering program for the past four years and now the program is expanding.

They began by serving small lunches for faculty meetings at the school and making cookies for holidays. Now the program is catering larger venues and events.

Around 20 students participate in the catering program each semester.

The teacher, Misty Claywell, says these students are learning skills that will benefit them in their future careers even if it’s not in the food industry.

She says expanding the program gives the students more opportunities to grow those skills.

“It gives the students more experience. It gives them more real-world experience to get out there and it gets them out into the community as well. It allows the community to learn more about us as well here at Glasgow High School and our program,” said Claywell.

The students will be catering their largest event to date in February.

Claywell encourages community members to reach out for their catering needs.
