Forty students from the Northwest Career and Technical Academy, Culinary Arts program spread pre-Thanksgiving holiday cheer by baking and delivering 10,000 assorted cookies to Nellis and Creech Air Force Bases Airmen during their visit here on Nov. 17, 2017.

The Culinary Arts program is a four year curriculum for approximately 300 high school students. The program offers advance culinary skills through a hands-on experience with an emphases on learning cooking and baking techniques, food safety, quality assurance, nutrition and production planning in a professional educational environment in northwest Las Vegas. 

For this year’s cookie project the students worked during normal class hours, after school and weekends to prepare the ingredients, bake, pack, and personally deliver the baked goods to the Community Commons on Nellis.

First Sergeants throughout Nellis and Creech stopped by to pick up large boxes of assorted cookies and delivered them to Airmen within their units.

On by half of the Nellis and Creech community we’d like to thank the culinary art students for their generosity during the holiday season.
