ELCS senior Dominic DeMuro, son of Dr. Robert and Karin DeMuro of Elizabethtown, earned top honors at the New York State SkillsUSA "Champions at Work" contest at the New York State Fair in Syracuse.
Dominic placed 1st for New York State in the Culinary Arts competition among 40 participants from various regions across the state. Dominic is in his second year of study at CV-TEC's culinary arts program, where Dominic attends courses in the afternoon of each school day, to sharpen his skills while completing New York State graduation requirements at the same time. The state competition involved tests of critical cooking skills like cutting, chopping, and use of available kitchen space.
Last year Dominic placed 9th in the State at the same competition.
