Student Chef Gives Cooking Demonstration

FCCLA chef cooking demonstration

On October 14th a Culinary Demonstrator from Johnson & Wales University (JWU) visited the Family & Consumer Sciences department! The student chef did a cooking demonstration and talked about going to college in the 8th Grade Home & Career Skills and the Introduction to Culinary Arts classes. Members of Millbrook's chapter of Family, Career & Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) were also invited to attend. JWU offers students who are actively involved with FCCLA scholarships that range from $1000.00 to a full ride based on their involvement with FCCLA. This was a wonderful opportunity for students to hear about going to college directly from a college student; as well as, learn a few new cooking techniques!

High School Art Club members Elisabeth Olivencia, Angelina Reale and Gabby Gordon photographed the “Museum in the Streets” opening ceremony this past Saturday, October 4th, for the Millbrook Historical Society. The Historical Society will choose from the hundreds of images taken to use in promoting this new local initiative. Museum in the Streets is a global program that promotes historical identity and encourages the preservation of local history by adopting a second language representing the primary ancestry of the town or village. Millbrook has chosen Italian as our second language acknowledging the many Italian families that first settled in and built much of Millbrook. 31 permanent plaques have been placed in and around the Village highlighting important places of historic value. For more information on Museum in the Streets go to

All those in attendance were treated to many musical numbers and inspiring speeches from a variety of talent and historically important speakers, including our own Millbrook High School Madrigals.

Pictured, from Saturday, are The Millbrook Madrigal’s, the actual ‘Ribbon Cutting’ and the primary plaque placed at the Thorne Memorial School for “Museum in the Streets”.
