Our next alumni feature for #ThrowbackThursday is Melissa (Gauthier) Chase who graduated in 2013 from our Culinary Arts program. Melissa is now a proud stay-at-home mom to two boys!

Pathfinder Tech helped Melissa get to where she is today because we fostered an environment that helped aid her in learning that taking a chance on something new is not always the easiest path but, it can be worth its weight in gold.

Her fondest memory from her four years at Pathfinder Tech was aiding the local community after tragedy. In 2011 a tornado struck Western Massachusetts, our sending town of Monson was negatively impacted by the storm. Our Culinary Arts program went forward just days after the storm and prepared lunches and water then went into Monson to give them out to community members.

Melissa's words of advice to prospective students or current students who are reading are: "Be your own person and make your own choices. You can always go back back to your sending school but the opportunity to try something new isn't always there."

Her PT shout-out is as follows: "I would like to give a shout out to all the shop teachers I had; Mrs. Rogers, Chef Bishop, Chef Nolan, Chef Mercier, Mr. Bernat, and Mr. Alger. Also a big shout out to Mrs. Rugg for all the personal life talks we had and the lessons she taught me. You will always be someone special to me. Also, to my amazing husband Mckinley Chase who I met at Pathfinder as a freshman and has been my best friend since."
