Educational Talent Search host culinary program at Wallace Community College-Selma

The Educational Talent Search held a culinary program on Tuesday at Wallace Community College-Selma.

Students in the program from Keith High School and Tipton-Durant Middle School were treated to a delectable spread of Fettuccini Alfredo, tossed salad and garlic bread cooked by The Sandbar’s Chef Harry Dominick.

Educational Talent Acting Director Corey Bowie said the goal is getting kids in the program another career option.

“I’m trying to change the narrative of the program,” Bowie said.

Dominick, known around Selma for his work as executive chef at the Edmundite Missions’ Bosco Nutrition Center, agreed with Bowie.

“I’m showing the kids another career path in culinary,” Dominick said.

Keith High basketball coach and Athletic Director Clifton Reeves, a sixth-grade history and math teacher at Tipton-Durant Middle School, said he enjoyed the event.

“It shows our students there are more jobs they can accomplish beside sports,” Reeves said. “The kids can have a career in culinary.”
