Estero High School Chef Educator Jeremy Jasper proudly announced that student Sabrina Torres won first place in the Edible Centerpiece competition in the recently completed Florida ProStart state culinary competition held in Orlando.

Jasper noted that Torres competed and won against 40 of the top culinary programs in the state.  She was awarded a $12,000 scholarship to Keiser University, along with a new knife set.

Jasper noted that the Estero High School culinary team also did very well in the competition and that he is proud of all of his students.

The Estero community supported the students’ participation in this competition by sponsoring “An Evening Under the Shadow Wood” fundraiser in December.  That event raised money to send the students to this competition as well as purchase the necessary equipment needed to upgrade their kitchen in order to become a premier program.
