 Distinguished Chef Series

 bengohI am pleased to extend an invitation to you to join the School of Hotel and Restaurant Administration as we celebrate the 2016-2017 Distinguished Chef Scholarship Benefit Series.

This cornerstone event serves as a pivotal educational component for our students’ academic and professional development and is one of the premier events on the Oklahoma State University campus. In celebration of our 25th anniversary, three of our highly accomplished alumni will join us. Additionally, we will welcome the Executive Chef at Tulsa’s Southern Hills Country Club plus a highly regarded educator from the Culinary Institute of America.

Please join us as we celebrate the long-standing tradition of HRAD students and faculty working hand-in-hand with cutting-edge professionals to produce an evening of hospitality at its finest. Chefs, restaurant owners, culinary experts, vintners and our patrons have each played a significant role in creating a truly world-class learning environment for our students.

I would like to extend a heart-felt thank you for your commitment to making this event so successful and providing such meaningful support to our students!
