Salt Lake Community College is home to one of the most highly accredited culinary institutes in the country, having repeatedly earned accreditation from the American Culinary Federation Education (ACFEF), the educational arm of the largest professional chef organization in North America.Such an honor places SLCC’s program, officially titled Salt Lake Community College Culinary Institute, among the leading culinary schools in the country, but at a fraction of the average tuition cost at other institutes. “This is one of the highest rated programs in the country for culinary arts, so there are a lot of people from out of state coming here because of the price and the quality,” said Daniel McIntosh, a second year student at the SLCC Culinary Institute. “I did a lot of research before I chose this college. It was hard for me to move away from my family, but it’s worth it in the long run.” Located at the SLCC Miller Campus, the SLCC Culinary Institute teaches more than food preparation. As an ACFEF accredited institution, the institute also teaches subjects such as risk management, human resource management, purchasing, food safety, and nutrition.
Ceremonial raising of the United States flag in honor of Veterans Day, November 11, 2014. Veterans Day was originally called Armistice Day which commemorated the end of World War I. World War I officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919. However, the fighting ended about seven months before that when the Allies and Germany put into effect an armistice on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. For that reason, Nov. 11, 1918, was largely considered the end of “the war to end all wars” and dubbed Armistice Day. In 1926, Congress officially recognized it as the end of the war, and in 1938, it became an official holiday, primarily a day set aside to honor veterans of World War I.

Salt Lake Community College exhibit of antique radios. Radio has a long history and a strong influence in the American culture, but a lesser known fact is that radio began as a hobby. The first voices and music heard over the radio came from Reginald Fessenden in December 1906. He initially broadcasted to anyone who had a radio, which was a luxury at the time. Then came “The Golden Age of Radio,” circa 1930-1955. During this period, creators connected with their audiences through radio plays, advertisements, and music. Society started embracing this new medium as a mainstream form of entertainment. It was through these years of radio that listeners really developed a connection and rapport with broadcasters. Not only did audiences listen to the radio for news, but would look to the broadcasters for opinions, and generally they began to become household friends.
