Tina Excellent, Culinary Program Instructor said, “I knew that Mayson would do great things. She is a natural at creating the most beautiful desserts and takes great care in her designs. I am super proud of her and our program here at PCHS. It is a great honor as a teacher to see your student win a $20,000 bake-off competition!
