Narrowing the Gap Event
Christine Ha came to Des Moines area community college to talk about her experience of being a blind individual and winning MasterChef on Gordon Ramsay’s TV show. Christine Ha wanted to recognize individuals in the food service industry who have not only gone above and beyond, but who are also wanting to continue exploring opportunities for additional training. This award was presented to Emily Adams because of her hard work and dedication in the classroom and towards vocational experiences. Emily went above and beyond in the food service industry by taking part in a summerlong internship opportunity; at the end of this opportunity, she had done such an amazing job, she was offered paid employment, all because Sodexo did not want to lose Emily’s expertises. Emily now plans to finish her academic credits and enroll in Culunary school at DMACC.
