Superintendent’s Spotlight: Klein ISD Culinary Arts Pathway

Life is what you BAKE it – and for these students in the Culinary Arts pathway, it’s pretty sweet!

Our Superintendent Dr. Jenny McGown joined the student chefs at Klein Forest as they prepared for a catering event. They taught Dr. McGown how to make delicious desserts like layered trifles and cheesecake-stuffed strawberries. Students in the Culinary Arts pathway at Klein Forest have the opportunity to cook in an industry-grade kitchen all within the walls of their high school!

“I learned so much from these chefs-in-training and am incredibly proud of their dedication to growing their craft and pursuing their passions,” Dr. McGown said. “This program truly allows our students to leave Klein ISD well-rounded and highly trained with multiple certifications upon graduation and real-life experience catering for families and business in our Klein community.”
