BILLERICA, MA — The Culinary Arts/Hospitality Management program at Shawsheen Valley Technical High School invites the public to its Grand Re-Opening luncheon on Wednesday March 9, 2022. Lunch will be offered in the student-run Rams Head Dining Room and will offer two seat times, 11:30 am and 12:00 pm. Guests will enjoy a 3-course meal consisting of a choice of soup or salad, an entrée, and a dessert, for $9.00.
To make a reservation, please call 978-671-3668; reservations are required. Students in the Culinary Arts/Hospitality Management program look forward to re-opening the dining room to the public, and expect to serve a full house.
“The dining room has been closed for two years because of COVID, and our students and staff are very excited to have it open again,” said lead teacher Joe Williams.
“The scope of instruction for students in this program is vast, as are the skills needed in industry,” added hospitality instructor Melissa Greene. “We teach students food preparation, food service management, dining room service, event planning, entrepreneurship and much more. The dining room helps pull many aspects of our curriculum together in real-time for our students.”
In addition to the dining room, Shawsheen has a student-run automotive shop, printing center, and salon open to the public. Guests are encouraged to visit the campus during the school day to utilize these services, as they provide authentic learning experiences for students.
