Congratulations to Kathy Ellefson and her team of culinary students at Elk River High School! They are this year’s winner of the ProStart Competition sponsored by the Hospitality Minnesota Education Foundation. The mentor for the team is Chef Tom Kavanaugh from Kavanaugh’s Resort. The culinary team will be representing Minnesota at the national ProStart competition in Baltimore, Maryland on April 27-29.

ProStart is an amazing learning opportunity for students in high school to learn about food preparation skills, time management and team work. Having this dynamic program in your school requires a great deal of extra work, time and dedication on the part of the FACS teacher. Kathy, we applaud your hard work, professionalism and dedication to your students and your program. We wish you and your team success in Baltimore!
