Monroe County Community College culinary arts program provides food in honor of Sen. Richardville's first bill
LANSING - Two classes from the Monroe County Community College culinary arts program today provided food in honor of Sen. Randy Richardville's first bill passed as a state senator.
As part of their class assignments, students planned the menu, prepared the food and presented it to the Senate.
"I was very pleased to welcome the students and staff from the Monroe County Community College culinary arts program," said Richardville, R-Monroe. "The students are incredibly talented, and everyone in the Senate enjoyed the food. They were the talk of the Capitol today."
The 17 students were joined by their instructor, chef Kevin Thomas; dean of the Business Division, Paul Knollman; and president of the college, David Nixon.
It is a custom of the Senate that upon passage of a senator's first bill of the term, the lawmaker will offer a treat from the district. Sen. Richardville's first bill, Senate Bill 191, was passed by the Senate in mid-February.
"These students set the bar high. It will be difficult for my colleagues to follow this and provide more delicious treats when their first bills are passed," Richardville said.
