Stephanie took culinary classes through Northwest Arkansas Community College (NWACC) before transferring to UAFS to pursue a Bachelor’s in Business Administration and is expected to graduate in May 2019. She is really involved on campus too, she’s an ambassador for the College of Business, she’s involved with the Campus Activities Board, Lion’s ROAR, and will be starting with the Alumni Association’s Mentor Connection program this semester. Stephanie is also applying for the James Beard Foundation’s Women in Culinary Leadership Program whose goal is to “provide women the opportunity to enhance their leadership skills so they can become executive chefs and/or restaurateurs”. Should she get in, she will have a top industry leader as a mentor.
