Culinary Students Place 3rd at ProStart Competition

Posted in: Student Recognition by T. Wetzel

Our ProStart team took 3rd place at the Wisconsin ProStart competition in Milwaukee on March 10, 2015.  The team had to perform four knife skills in 15 minutes, along with an appetizer,  entrée and dessert in an hour.  The team does not have running water and may only use two butane burners to cook their menu. It’s a pretty intense competition,  and is judged by some of the top chefs in the food service industry.  There were 24 teams that competed in the culinary competition.  These students have worked extremely hard in class,  but mostly outside of class for hours that cannot be counted at the Grand Geneva.  They also received scholarship money ranging from $1,000-$9,000 from culinary schools across the nation for placing 3rd.

Please give these students (Aaron Turner, Matteo Kramer, Chris Wyble, Jess Hemmi and Lauren Brendel) a round of applause,  a pat on the back, any gratitude or praise because they truly deserve it!

Wilmot Decathletes to Defend State Title

Posted in: Student Recognition by T. Wetzel

FullSizeRenderThe Panthers handily won the UW-Whitewater regional by over 5,000 points earning an automatic berth to the Wisconsin academic decathlon state competition in March. All nine team members competed in all ten events in the nation’s premier scholastic competition. This year’s curricular theme is New Alternatives in Energy: Ingenuity and Innovation.

Wilmot decathletes posted the program’s best regional score ever while capturing 53 of the possible 90 individual ribbons from the ten-event contest, also a school record. They did especially well on both the Art and Social Science tests, taking all nine possible ribbons; blue, red, and white in all three divisions; honors, scholastic, and varsity. Each Wilmot decathlete earned at least four individual ribbons at the one day event.

The team was led in scoring by junior Carl Simmons in the honors division.  Both he and his fellow honors teammate junior Carlie Banchi broke the 8,000 point threshold with only 59 points separating the dynamic duo.  They are the highest regional scoring decathletes in Wilmot history and are most likely the top two scorers in the state thus far.

IMG_1067Simmons won seven ribbons in the ten different events, taking home blue ribbons in Music, Social Studies, and Lang & Lit. Banchi received ribbons in a school record nine events, only missing out on essay. She won blue in Science, Art, Economics, and Interview. She also earned a blue for a perfect 1,000 on her prepared and impromptu speeches. Junior Alyssa Gregory, also an honors, won blue in essay and was the most improved Wilmot decathlete since the prior competition in November. Wilmot decathletes in the honors division took nine of the ten possible blue ribbons collectively, missing out only in Math where Simmons and Banchi tied for 2nd.

In the scholastic division junior Joey Burba led the way. He too improved greatly since the local competition. Burba secured 8 ribbons in the ten events, earning blue in Music, Science, Art, and Economics. Joey is most likely leading all scholastics state wide. Senior Johny Weber won 6 ribbons, with blue in Social Science and Lang & Lit. Johny is most likely the second highest scoring decathlete statewide. Junior Angela Schumacher tallied 4 ribbons, her best was a 2nd place red ribbon in Art.

Leading the way for the Panthers in the varsity division was junior Althea Disse.  She netted a team high 6 blue ribbons in Music, Art, Economics, Interview, Social Science and Lang & Lit. Junior Mason Nindl bagged 4 ribbons, all red, bested only by teammate Disse each time. Junior Ashley Dabbs added 4 more ribbons, her best a red ribbon in Science.

More individual honors

Six Panthers including Simmons, Banchi, Burba, Weber, Disse, and Nindl populated the nine-member all-regional team, a Wilmot best.

Simmons, Burba, and Disse were named top overall scholars in their respective honors, scholastic, and varsity divisions.  Each received an overall blue ribbon and an individual star-shaped trophy for their awesome achievement.  It was the first time all three regional top scholars were from Wilmot.

Team honors

Most importantly, each member of the team was recognized with a first place team ribbon and collectively brought home the first place team trophy for their victory.

Wilmot posted the highest score in all 5 Regionals held across the state, marking the first time a team from Wilmot leads going into the state finals.  It was Wilmot’s fifth consecutive regional win, propelling them to the school’s eleventh consecutive state competition appearance. Wilmot remains the only Kenosha county school to ever advance to state.
