BISMARCK (UTN) - A recent graduate of the United Tribes Nutrition and Foodservice Program has landed a job in the culinary field following mid-year graduation. Josiah C. Jacobs (Fort Peck Tribe) walked the stage and received his diploma at the Fall Honoring ceremony December 17. Now he’s working in the foodservice industry.
During his final semester at UTTC, Josiah completed 150 field experience hours at the University of Mary Dining Center. Upon completion, he was offered a full-time position and he started after graduation.
His field experience supervisor spoke highly of his work ethic and the knowledge and enthusiasm he shared with his fellow employees at the University of Mary.
A Nutrition and Foodservice field experience includes hands-on opportunities, like cooking and food preparation, and customer service. It improves skills and confidence in food industry requirements. Completing the hours at local facilities and businesses puts UTTC students in position to begin full-time employment following graduation.
Josiah’s academic work resulted in many honors and accolades as a graduate of the program. He also received a Nutrition and Foodservice/Land Grant scholarship and recognition in Who’s Who Among College Students.
