Each year, a handful of women from the upper Midwest pursuing Culinary Arts degrees receive the Sue Zelickson Grant from the Women Who Really Cook organization. MCTC students Orian Lavi and Kelli Wirkkula were two of 12 students to receive $500 grants in May 2014.
Lavi is studying abroad from Israel. MCTC’s highly touted culinary programs made her choice of college simple.
“I always wanted to study abroad,” she said. “MCTC was the first school I checked.”
