TULARE, CALIFORNIA - Fisher is proud to announce the 2019 winner of the Fisher Manufacturing Annual Culinary Scholarship: Kelly Scott.
For the past two years, Fisher has partnered with the Culinary Institute of America's California campus at Greystone, offering an annual $2,000 scholarship to a student who demonstrated passion and dedication toward their education and the foodservice field.
Over a five-year period, Fisher will be awarding a total of $10,000 to America's up-and-coming chefs.
Kelly Scott definitely embodies that vision. After suffering a debilitating brain injury in her chosen pursuit of volleyball, Kelly struggled to redefine her life. Cooking quickly became a much-needed diversion from a painful recovery, but quickly progressed into a full-blown passion. Few were surprised when Kelly announced she wanted to embark on a career in foodservice to, in her words, “show others who may be going through similar struggles that they can find inspiration and health through food.”
Whether reducing waste through recycling and simplified packaging, or by making products that help cut water usage, Fisher is always looking for ways to give back to their community and their industry. A 4th-generation family-owned California company, they’re honored to be helping state students with a future in foodservice.
The Culinary Institute of America was founded in 1946 and is considered by many to be the world's premier culinary school. Located in St. Helena, California, amid the beautiful Napa Valley, its Greystone campus opened in 1995. They currently have 300 students together with an alumni network of some 49,000 people.
