Humble ISD Hospitality Services students competed against over 200 students from 20 area high schools in the annual Hospitality Educators Association of Texas (HEAT) competition March 23 and took home five team and 25 individual medals. 

 

250 students gathered at the M.O. Campbell Educational Center to test their skills and expertise in different areas of the hospitality and culinary industry.  Events included Banquet Set-up, Job Interview, Manager on Duty, centerpiece design, and more. The competition is open to local high school students who participate in culinary or hospitality internship programs.

 

To prepare for the events students participate in a Hospitality internship program at the Houston Airport Marriot Hotel, led by Humble ISD Hospitality Instructor Risa McCann. Students have the opportunity to work side by side with Marriott mentors to learn different job skills, professionalism, and important and current information about the hospitality industry.

 

The students competed in both individual and group events and placed in eight out of eleven events. Team competitors took first place in Banquet Set Up and Manager on Duty; second place in the Hospitality Industry Academic Test, Centerpiece and Job Interview. Additional Medals received are:
