The CEO of the Texas Restaurant Association will be touring the culinary facilities at McAllen Memorial High School (101 E. Hackberry Ave.) on Thursday, Aug. 22.

The tour will be from 1:30-2:30 pm.

McAllen ISD uses ProStart culinary curriculum. It is a national industry-based certification for hospitality to include all areas of culinary arts. Students can earn this certification in high school without paying the tuition and other fees if they took the same courses in college. So this saves them time and money.
