MCTC CULINARY ARTS MOVING ON, GRATEFUL TO CARLSON FAMILY FOR A WONDERFUL BEGINNING

image of Bruce and Gisela Carlson with MCTC President Ed StoryMaysville Community and Technical Colleges Maysville Institute of Culinary Arts will soon be moving to a new location in the historic Cox Building in Maysville. For the past four years, the program has resided in the previous Bishops Table, owned by Bruce and Gisela Carlson. The Carlsons generously donated the building for the Institute to get its start.

As a result of their generosity, the program has grown from one initial class with twelve students to fourteen classes for the Fall 2012 semester with over forty students. Four students have already graduated from the program with an Associate Degree in Culinary Arts.

The Culinary Institute could not have functioned if the Carlsons had not allowed MCTC to use the Bishops Table for the past four years, said MCTC President Ed Story. Mr. and Mrs. Carlson have been instrumental in ushering in the MCTC downtown Maysville Culinary program. Their community involvement and unselfish commitment to community education cannot be surpassed. We thank them for their continued support of the vision of our college.

The former Bishops Table is going to become an expansion of the Carlson Software Company and will house offices for the Machine Control division, starting August 20.
