Greene County Career Academy Culinary/Hospitality Students Prepare Desserts for PEO Meeting: Members of the PEO chapter visited the Greene County Career Academy on Monday, September 12th, to hear about the career academy and the pathways currently being offered in Greene County. Culinary/hospitality students Darrien Peterson, Aryanna Rank, and Kathuran Reynoza worked with their instructor, Chef D ~ Denise Moranville, to find the perfect recipes. They found what they wanted on Pinterest and prepared peanut butter cup pies and a pineapple dream dessert. As you can see from the pictures, their presentation was just as good as the desserts. Both desserts were a hit with the PEO members.
