I’m taking next week off. Have a great two weeks.

Beaulieu on to culinary institute

Lebanon High School Class of 2009 graduate Aaron Beaulieu, son of Terry and Normand Beaulieu of Grantham, was accepted at New England Culinary Institute in Montpelier, Vt., where he will pursue a career as a bakery/pastry chef. He will leave for NECI on July19.

Aaron studied culinary trades for two years at the Hartford Area Career Technical College and was awarded a $1,000 renewable scholarship in honor of outstanding excellence from Chef Aron Tomlinson to be applied to a student attending NECI.

During the June 8 Senior Awards Ceremony, Aaron was also awarded the Yankee Barn Homes Scholarship, Frank & Olive Gilman Foundation Scholarship, William & Helen Kelley Smith Scholarship (NHCF), and The Carl T. Witherell Scholarship (NHCF). 

A graduation party was held at his home on June 13 for family and friends to share in Aaron's success and to wish him well in his next adventure at NECI. Congratulations, Aaron, we are very proud of you.
