Brightwater Chef and Student

Brightwater, the center for the study of food program at Northwest Arkansas Community College is preparing to teach culinary skills during the pandemic. Brightwater students will master their skills in the kitchen while staying safe.

“It’s going to be a little different, there’s not going to be free range of running around in the kitchen. You’re going to have a station and you’re going to work at that station,” said Marshall Shafkowitz, the Executive Director for Brightwater.

He said several plans are in place to protect the culinary students and staff during the COVID-19 crisis.
