Hospitality Students Savor the Kentucky Derby

Pennsylvania College of Technology hospitality students were the big winners at the 2018 Kentucky Derby. A contingent of 28 students and 10 alumni worked for Levy Restaurants at Churchill Downs throughout Derby Week, a commitment captured in a video added to the college’s YouTube channel. The Penn College representatives played a key role in food production for the exclusive clubs and suites overlooking the iconic track. The long days and mass quantities of food provided a unique, invaluable experience for the students at one of the world’s most prestigious sporting events. “The Derby would not be successful without the Penn College kids’ contribution to this event,” says Chef Robin Rosenberg, chef de cuisine for Levy Restaurants. “They are amazing. They are enthusiastic. Their passion, their work ethic, second to none.”
