The TRA Education Foundation teamed up with Texas-based Williamson-Dickie Mfg. Co. to provide 17,000 Dickies chef coats, at a value of more than $350,000, to high school students enrolled in 220 Texas ProStart culinary arts and restaurant management programs during the back-to-school season.
The partnership was announced this past Friday at press conference held at Trimble Tech High School in Fort Worth. Rep. Charlie Geren was the featured speaker and guests included TRA and TRAEF board members, Fort Worth ISD administrators, and students and instructors from Fort Worth ISD schools offering culinary arts and restaurant management programs.
More details, including a video ‘Thank You!’ from Bowie High School in Austin, are available on the TRA Blog.
