Last month, LISD TECH Center Culinary Arts students presented restaurant concepts and sample menu items as part of a food hall project. Students invited friends, family, LISD staff, and local business leaders in the restaurant field to attend. A food hall is a collection of small restaurants, usually locally-developed concepts, new creations from established chefs, or start-up restauranteurs. Food halls offer a variety of diverse food and beverage items that are often prepared from scratch. Unlike mall food courts that are designed to feed shoppers and support retailers, food courts are their own destinations with little or no retail offerings.
On Thursday, April 6th, 82 local high school students were inducted into the LISD TECH Center chapter of the National Technical Honor Society (NTHS) during an evening ceremony. NTHS is an honor society that celebrates and empowers outstanding career and technical education (CTE) students through recognition, networking, and scholarship opportunities.
