SEPC announces recipients of inaugural Fresh Chefs Scholarship

The Southeast Produce Council announced the recipients of its newest scholarship program. The SEPC Fresh Chefs are Mya Campbell, Kristin Feliciano and Rebecca Martinez.

Each of these three recipients will receive one $1,500 scholarship toward their educational goals for the upcoming year. In addition to the scholarship funds, each recipient will also be invited to attend SEPC’s Southern Innovations conference & expo, Sept. 22–24.

The SEPC will cover hotel and travel expenses to the event and will also provide an SEPC Fresh Chefs jacket for each recipient. At Southern Innovations, the scholarship recipients will have the opportunity to network with hundreds of produce industry grower-shipper members as well as the nation’s leading retailers and foodservice distributors.

“On behalf of the Southeast Produce Council, I would like to congratulate these recipients of our inaugural SEPC Fresh Chefs scholarship,” said IPC’s Stanley Trout, SEPC board member and Foodservice Committee chairman. “The quality of these applicants is truly something to celebrate, and we are excited to be able to provide this opportunity for them, including their invitation to join us at Southern Innovations where we’ll introduce them to key innovators within the produce industry,”

This innovative program is open annually to any fulltime college or secondary education student pursuing a degree in culinary arts or restaurant management.

“We are excited to welcome the inaugural class of the SEPC Fresh Chefs scholarship program,” said David Sherrod, SEPC president and CEO. “By awarding these future chefs with much-needed scholarship funds, we hope to promote the benefits of adding more produce to our diets for future generations. We want to congratulate them on their hard work and wish them continued success.”
