The Warsaw Area Career Center & Chef Bragg's Culinary students would like to extend sincere thanks to Mr. Ronald Boyd for sharing his knowledge, wisdom, & expertise with the art of fileting & frying fish! Ron took time out of his busy schedule to not only catch all of these fish, but to also expand our culinary students fish fileting/frying skills. Today, Mr. Boyd will fry the rest of the fish for the WACC staff for dinner during Parent-Teacher Conferences. We are so grateful that he does this every year for our students and staff!
