Bethlehem Central High School student Robert Mulder-Johnson, an aspiring chef who studies Culinary Arts as part of the Capital Region BOCES Career and Technical Education (CTE) program, will put his skills to the test this month as he heads to the SkillsUSA competition in Syracuse.

SkillsUSA provides CTE students an opportunity to demonstrate their in-depth knowledge of the skilled trades and leadership skills. Mulder-Johnson will show off some of the job skills he has learned while exploring a career in the restaurant business.

“I am going to demonstrate how to make crepes. I am really good at it and I like to show others how to do things,” said Mulder-Johnson. “I am also looking forward to the whole experience and meeting new students interested in the same thing.”

Congratulations and best of luck in Syracuse, Robert!
