"We practice a lot by doing a lot of baking," said teacher Dorothy Edwards, who works with co-teacher Cheryl Allen in family and consumer science educa- tion. "In the past we did Pro Start, but three years ago, we attended Skills USA," Edwards said. The program includes food preparation classes, fashion design, family health and child develop- ment, she said. One class, "On Your Own," prepares students for breaking away from home, teaching useful skills for young adults in their first apartment. The program also teaches fashion design with a new CAD program that provides students a chance to design their own patterns. Three students com- peted in commercial bak- ing. A sophomore, Mereesa Peterson won second place in commercial baking, and a senior, Allyssa Bor- resson won third place in culinary. After they competing in a regional competition of Skills USA, Edwards sent in her students' scores and then they were invited to the state competition. She said the competi- tion was arduous. "In the commercial bak- ing category they spent six hours baking a yeast bread, a sweet dough pas- try, a scone, a pie, and a cake complete with deco- rations. In the culinary competi- tions, they spent two hours preparing an appetizer, entree and dessert. Edwards said another AHS student, who is study- ing diesel mechanics at Sno-Isle Skill Center, Ron- ald Sheppard, also placed second in his category. "Skills USA put on this great competition in Yakima," Edwards said. It provides a competi- tive challenge to students in the vocational educa- tion, from automotive and diesel mechanics, and cos- metology, to health, first aid and firefighting as well as. a variety of food service industries. "They also do lead- ership competitions," Edwards said.
