Penn College Students at the Kentucky Derby

Nearly 40 Penn College students cooked for thousands at the Kentucky Derby, early last month. Representatives of Levy Restaurants, which provides food service at Churchill Downs, visited campus in February to interview student applicants. The students were accompanied by Chef Paul Mach and Chef Charles Niedermyer and prepared foods for guests in suites and luxury boxes throughout the facility including The Mansion, a lavish, invitation-only venue.
