Take Five

NEWS RELEASE SAULT COLLEGE ************************* SAULT STE.



SAULT STE. MARIE - Sault College Hospitality Management student Connor Rothenberger and Culinary Management student Mark Hautanen were presented with a $500 cheque from TD Canada Trust at this month’s Chamber of Commerce Take Five event.

In its 17th year, the Take Five networking evening which includes serving a host of gourmet appetizers and desserts to a sell-out business crowd is hosted by Sault College’s esteemed Culinary and Hospitality Institute at The Gallery.

As the title sponsor, TD Canada Trust takes this opportunity to recognize the academic performance of two students who excel in the Culinary and Hospitality programs.

Rothenberger knew he always wanted to help people so he decided Hospitality Management at Sault College was a great place to start

“I am new to Sault Ste. Marie and I wanted a new start to my career. Sault College has allowed me to break out of my shell, and now that I have some direction, anything is possible. I look forward to a successful career in the hotel industry or corporate business world.”

Hautanen came to the College as an adult learner.

“I am married, and have two daughters. I have always been creative, inventive, and passionate about food ever since I was a child. While I’ve worked in many different industries in my lifetime, I’ve constantly been drawn to the Culinary Arts. With the support of my family, I chose to take Culinary Management, through the second career program at Sault College. I’m confident that the training I received from my Professors at the college, will aid me in gaining meaningful employment in the near future.”

A highlight among Chamber members, the Take Five event allows Sault College the opportunity to showcase the talents and expertise of Hospitality and Culinary students.

“Along with Take Five, the winter term provides culinary and hospitality students with events including sell-out Gourmet dinners including the Bon Soo event, Gallery Theme night dinners and various community socials,” explains professor Deron Tett, coordinator of the Hospitality program at Sault College.

Sault College congratulates these award recipients in striving for academic excellence while being dedicated to achieving their personal best.

Thank you to TD Canada Trust, and to all those who support Sault college students.
