The Pickens County High School Culinary Arts Lab hosted an open house to show off their new facility with commercial grade appliances. The curriculum prepares students for positions as chefs, cooks, and food preparation workers. With 100 students this semester, instructor Sue Gibbons is teaching extended day, which is four classes and no planning period. There was a $48,000 savings from the $227,000 estimated by using local contractors and free labor from the inmate work detail during the summer, when school was out. The CDH Architect Melissa Cantrell is a 1992 Pickens High School graduate.
