Culinary Enrollment at 169; College considering adding another section; Hospitality enrolls 24; 14 obtain culinary certificates
Enrollment at the Sedona Center for its new Culinary programs is doing well. According to Dean James Perey, who updated the District Governing Board on February 13 about the Verde Campus and Sedona Center, enrollment in culinary courses for the spring semester is at 169 students. He is considering adding another section in fall 2018 to accommodate the demand for the culinary offerings.
He noted that 14 high school culinary students recently received their culinary certificates. Those that were already holding jobs received an immediate increase of from $1 to $2 and hour.
The hospitality program was successfully launched this spring with an initial enrollment of 24 students. He is working with the Yavapai-Apache Nation that has just completed the large hotel addition in Camp Verde to assess how the College and the Nation can use the facility for training.
