BVT’s culinary arts instructor receiveds MVA’s New Teacher Award

UPTON, Mass. – Chef Laura Campagna, the Culinary Arts instructor in charge of the baking program at Blackstone Valley Regional Vocational Technical High School, has earned recognition from the Massachusetts Vocational Association as the recipient of its annual New Teacher Award.

According to a press release, Chef Campagna proudly provides her students with an outstanding vocational-technical education. Her positive energy, creative thinking, and hard work have brought the Bake Shop to a new level. Paired with an engaging curriculum and challenging projects, all contributed to earning the recognition.

“Receiving the MVA New Teacher Award exemplifies the talent and passion that Laura Campagna brings to our Culinary Arts program,” said Supt.-Director Michael F. Fitzpatrick. “We are proud of Chef Campagna and her achievement. We enjoy pursuing the pastry counter and sampling her students’ work.”

The MVA New Teacher Award is given to a new teacher that exemplifies excellence in teaching in the vocational high school setting. The award includes $500 for the purchase of new supplies for the shop program. Campagna plans to use those funds to enhance her students’ learning experience with a touchscreen or projection unit, which would allow her to easily display notes, recipes, class outlines, and more.
