Ypsi culinary students rack up honors, including the chance to cook for astronauts

Having beat out teams from across the U.S., a team of four Ypsilanti Community High School students is among the top 10 in the NASA HUNCH Culinary Challenge.

Chef Aaron Gaertner and Ypsilanti Community High School students at the RCTC culinary arts program.

Cooking for astronauts is quite a challenge. Meals must be nutritious and delicious while also having low sodium and absolutely no crumbs. But, for four Ypsilanti students who are part of Ypsilanti's Regional Career Technical Center (RCTC) culinary arts program, it's a piece of cake.

Please direct them to the District Marketing Student Council (DMSC). Students will have the opportunity to gain experience in different marketing areas, work closely with YCS administration, and contribute ideas to advance YCS's marketing plan. This group will also be student-led! We are looking for creative minds to collaborate with. Some tasks that would be covered would be creating content for the District Newsletter, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
