  • Danish Visit on April 22, 2016

    On Friday, April 22, 2016, the Danish Minister for Environment and Food, Mr. Esben Lunde Larsen along with Ms. Anna Cecile De Klauman, Minister Counselor, Food Agriculture and Fisheries and five staff members visited our culinary kitchen. 

     

    In addition to providing a wonderful lunch Chef Bill Peacock and several of our aspiring chefs gave an informative description of our culinary program.  Wildcat graduate and Culinary Associate Luis Nova described the transformative hydroponics program.

     

    The Danish delegation was in N.Y.C. to attend the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development. Ms. De Klauman had this to say about their visit to our Bronx campus, “I have to say that the visit more than lived up to our expectations! It was very inspiring and interesting to learn about the Wildcat program and your teaching philosophy – the Culinary program and the Urban farming and not least to meet and talk with your fantastic students. The food they prepared was amazing. When we left the Wildcat school the minister said, that this was a visit that he would never forget.”

WELCOME TO JVL WILDCAT!

PRINCIPAL'S CORNER

I am sure anyone who attended our recent commencement ceremony would agree that it was truly an uplifting and spirited event.  The students and a record number of guests were inspired by our guest speaker, Mr. Ernest Logan, President of the Council of Supervisors and Administrators.  Our student speakers RD Matthew-Sanchez Almeda and Keiayrrah Williams captured the spirit and journey of our accomplished graduating students.

We are confident our 125 graduates will have bright futures and, of equal importance, embrace Mr. Logan’s challenge and positively impact the lives of others.

The fall term begins on September 8th.  Enjoy the rest of the summer!
