Dorsey culinary student wins scholarship

Carlos Cordero, a senior at Dorsey High School in South Los Angeles received a $2,300 college scholarship from Careers through Culinary Arts Program(C-CAP) to further his culinary dreams.  When LAUSD decided to cut funding for C-CAP, students at Dorsey High School were able to keep participating through a generous donation from Mother Of Many (M.O.M.). 

Careers through Culinary Arts Program (C-CAP) works with public schools across the country to prepare under-served high school students for college and career opportunities in the restaurant and hospitality industry.  C-CAP manages the largest independent high school culinary scholarship program in the United States.

Carlos is among the students who will join the Dorsey Culinary Arts Program and Crenshaw Digital Media team’s visit to the White House.  Click here for information on the Journey to the White House.
