After a 15-month effort that culminated in last week’s final round in Providence, Rhode Island, Chef Charles R. Niedermyer II was not selected to compete at the 2016 Coupe du Monde de la Boulangerie in France. The instructor of baking and pastry arts/culinary arts and 2000 Penn College alumnus learned Thursday that he did not make the cut in the breakfast pastry category as a member of the three-person Team USA. “Penn College is an amazing place to work with amazing individuals in all departments. I would not have made it to the finals without the help I received,” the School of Business & Hospitality faculty member said. “Trying out for the team was an awesome experience from beginning to end. I was proud to wear Penn College on my chef jacket along the way.”
