By WestKyStar Staff
MAYFIELD, KY - Five Graves County High School seniors have earned food industry certificates, qualifying them as “career ready” on the Kentucky Department of Education’s new accountability model. The five earned ServSafe Food Protection Manager Certification, accredited by the American National Standards Institute-Conference for Food Protection.
Managers learn to implement essential food safety practices and create a culture of food safety. All content and materials are based on actual job tasks identified by foodservice industry experts. The ServSafe® program is developed by the National Restaurant Association with the help of foodservice industry. ServSafe is a national industry certificate.
“I am extremely proud of the hard work and dedication these culinary students have invested in preparing for the rigorous ServSafe managers training and industry certificate exam,” McClain said. “They clearly see the relevance between the topics they’ve studied and the real world careers they’re considering pursuing. I’ve enjoyed my relationship with these seniors. While I will miss them after they graduate, I also am excited about their career possibilities.”
