Abington High School Student Receives the ACF Student Leadership Award

Eastern Center for Arts and Technology (EASTERN) Culinary Arts student/Abington High School junior, Ashley Lademann, received the American Culinary Federation (ACF) Student Leadership Award at the ACF President’s Charity Scholarship Ball on Sunday, April 9, 2017 at the Philadelphia Country Club.

Both of Ashley’s parents are in the culinary field, so she has grown up immersed in the industry. “Both the Culinary Arts program at EASTERN and my ACF membership broadened my knowledge of the culinary field and my technical expertise,” said Ashley. “I am now more aware of the different career opportunities within the culinary field. I chose this path because I enjoy making food. Food makes people happy.”

After completing her Culinary Arts program at EASTERN in 2018, Ashley is considering continuing her education at Johnson and Wales University. Culinary Arts at EASTERN enables students to acquire a variety of skills including cooking, baking, kitchen sanitation, purchasing, and inventory controls.
