Restaurant/Food Service Management
Restaurant managers ensure that restaurants operate efficiently and profitably
while maintaining their reputation and ethos. They must coordinate a variety of
activities, whatever the size or type of the outlet. Managers are responsible for
the business performance of their restaurant, as well as maintaining high standards
of food, service, health, and safety.
Restaurant management combines strategic planning, shift pattern organization,
and day-to-day management activities. Depending on the nature of the outlet, the
role may have creative aspects, particularly in marketing and business development.
As a key role within the hospitality sector, restaurant management may be fast-
paced, highly demanding and very rewarding.
National and regional restaurant chains strongly prefer to hire individuals who
graduate from 2-year or 4-year college hospitality management programs with
degrees in restaurant and institutional food management. A bachelor's degree in
food service management is a very strong preparation for a career in restaurant
Career Summary Cont.
Culinary Arts – Pastry
The pastry chef works in restaurants, bistros, large hotels, casinos and bakeries.
The pastry kitchen or pastry section is normally slightly separate from the main
kitchen. The station chef or pastry chef, in a professional chef kitchen, are highly
skilled in making desserts, pastries and many other baked goods. In the pastry
kitchen, they often have other assistants to help them.
Some of the many responsibilities of the pastry chef often include ordering, costing
and menu planning. In daily operations, the pastry chef may develop new recipes,
test them or research new recipe concepts. Although they do not usually plate their
desserts, they prepare them in advance.

National Honor Society
Inducted Spring of Sophomore year
Our Union High School National Honor Society requires at least 20 hours
of individual community service and participation in 3 or more group
projects. So far we have cleaned a section of highway outside of town,
and put on a canned food/ coin drive in our community and school district
for the local food bank. I individually work the concession stand at our
local fair during the summer, and tutor a younger student in math.

8th Grade (Summer 06) - Present
My Dad is a professional horse trainer in Junction City,
Oregon. His website is www.dougstewartstables.com.
Whenever we are there, we live and breathe horses. My
siblings and I have been showing every summer since 2006,
and love it. The horses I show are Hucklebey Bleus +//
(Huck) and HH Augustus (Gus). I show in Country English
and Show Hack in the 14-17 age division. Showing horses
teaches responsibility, timeliness, and people skills. Since
we are the trainer’s kids we work just as much as the
hired help, but that is what makes it fun. Showing is a
great way to travel and learn the importance of hard work.
