"I started as a dishwasher." Meet Cora Bollwahn, the recipient of the Kohler Scholarship through the Lakeshore Technical College Foundation. Her first job as a dishwasher at Kohler's Private Riverbend location created the opportunity for her to meet a Lakeshore Culinary Institute student who was completing an internship. This chance meeting inspired Cora's enrollment at the Lakeshore Culinary Institute. "I've developed an understanding of sustainability." She explains a concern for food sourcing and product utilization. "I like to showcase products that were locally sourced, for example the Lake Orchard Aquaponics farm." Her passion for perfection is exemplified in her approach. "It's no longer good enough. I change just one ingredient or the quality of an ingredient to improve overall quality."
