 RECAP

Equity, innovation and scaling impact emphasized at 5th Annual 60 by 25 Network Conference

Jocelyn Sharif has been interested in cooking since she was a young child watching the Food Network with her parents.
“I was a shy child,” said Jocelyn, “and cooking was a way to express myself.”

Now Jocelyn has taken her interest in cooking and applied it to a career path. She is enrolled in Bloomington Area Career Center’s culinary arts program and will further her pursuit of culinary arts and hospitality management at Johnson & Wales University in Providence, R.I.

“This program has really made me realize what exactly I want to do,” said Jocelyn. “It made me realize I could be a chef and be my own boss.”
High school students across the state are more prepared to attain postsecondary degrees and credentials because of career pathways programs like those in Bloomington. Career pathways and aligning the education system were among the topics at the 5th Annual Illinois 60 by 25 Network Conference, which took place February 6-7 in Bloomington.
