Focus on Career Readiness: A Chef and an HGTV Design Star spoke to HHS students this week

Our very own SFE Chef Austin Wages paid a visit to the culinary arts lab at Houston High School. He led the class in creating strawberry salsa while discussing culinary career opportunities. It was delicious and educational–we've included the recipe below.
In Ms. Monica Thomas' Dual Enrollment Entrepreneurship Class, students had an opportunity to learn from guest speaker Carmeon Hamilton, an interior designer, merchandising consultant, the creator behind the brand, Nubi Interiors, and an HGTV Design Star from Reno my Rental.
"I finished college with a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design, started my career in healthcare design and was later pulled into the world of residential. But, it wasn’t until I discovered retail, merchandising and environmental design that I was really able to explore my true passion for interior design and decor and apply my analytical thinking to such vast arrays of spaces," Carmeon shared as she described forging her own career path to the class of hopeful entrepreneurs.
