In this edition of Mary’s Monday Minute, WHS student Lahalia Jackson tells us about the hands-on learning going on in the culinary arts department at Washougal High School. This year, students at Washougal High School served up their first meals out of the Shoug Shack. The Shoug Shack is a student-run food truck, from conceptualization of the food truck to menu development, meal preparation, customer service, and more.
Despite budgetary constraints, the district has been able to maintain important job readiness programs like the food truck project by leveraging strong local community support and targeted funding sources like state CTE funding, grants, and community partnerships.
