115 inducted into National Honor Society
CLOVER Clover High School’s Chapter of the National Honor Society inducted 115 new members Nov. 21 at the Clover School District Auditorium.
These students were recognized for their excellence in scholarship, leadership, service and character as well as for having a minimum 4.0 GPA on a 5.0 uniform grading scale.
CHS Principal Dr. Mark Hopkins presented opening remarks and presented the certificates with teacher and sponsor Yvonne McElwee.
CHS part of ProStart culinary program
CLOVER Clover High School’s Culinary Arts Program is now a ProStart Gold Program.
At a workshop at Johnson & Wales University in Charlotte the weekend of Nov. 23, Chef Instructor Bou Baker received a ProStart flag to display in his classroom. Clover was the top school in the Carolinas to have ProStart students earn their certificates of achievement.
ProStart is a program for high school students that gives students the opportunity to learn about the art of cooking and managing restaurants by training with professional chefs and getting valuable classroom instruction.
Students can earn certificates after successfully meeting all of the requirements. They take classes for the first two years and pass national exams. They also must work in a restaurant or food service job and clock in 400 hours, 200 of which can be from working with in-school catering.
Clover had six students earn their certificates of achievement, two more students than any other Carolina school. Five of the students graduated from CHS last year: Dain Christensen, Kenny Dethleuxay, Dalton Faulkenberry, Kenyon Jeffrey and Julia Riddle. The sixth student to receive the award is Quynh Pham, a senior at CHS.
