The Vol State Top Chef is...

You can call Will Newman the king of chili at Vol State or by his new official title "Vol State Top Chef." Will won the annual Employee Relations Committee "Chili/Soup Cook-off for Books" contest for his cornbread chili. That's correct- cornbread baked over chili. It was pretty darn good. The win means that Will can keep the coveted Top Chef hat for the rest of the year. Second place went to Kim Morris and third to Alycia Ehlert. The judges this year were Gallatin Firefighters. They had the hard task of picking favorites out of a strong set of contenders.

This event raises money for a book scholarship for a Vol State employee who is going to college. The latest recipient was David McDonald from Maintenance.

"I am returning to school to complete my business management degree that I started more than 25 years ago," McDonald said in his thank-you letter. He received $150 for books for the Spring 2014 semester.
