Under the theme: “Progressing Towards Food Security,” the 4th Bahamas National Agricultural, Agri-Business and Marine Resources held their Annual Expo at the Gladstone Road Agricultural Center from March 7 to 9.
Principal Huel Moss explained that S. C. Bootle High School was represented in two capacities. Firstly, Faith Gulliver, Agriculture Teacher, took two students, Loveline Florestal and Teshawn Curry, to observe animal and plant displays to reinforce what is being taught in their program.
Conversely, Chavonne Reid, Consumer Science teacher, took Nicole Rolle and Vanessa Jean to participate in the senior and junior culinary competitions with students from across the country, which called for them to prepare complete meals using locally produced products.
Nicole placed second in the senior division. She prepared Fisherman’s Delight, Cooper’s Town Special and Sautéed Bok Choy. In the junior division, Vanessa also placed second by preparing White Coconut Pork, Abaco Mash and Stewed Vegetables.
Moss said: “Congratulations young ladies and congratulations S. C. Bootle High School. You make all of Abaco proud.”
