Chef Tee caters at White House with Potomac Job Corps

Mexican sweet breads, Mexican wedding cake and a tropical fruit display.

Those were the creations that Chef “Tee” Terrell Danley and his Potomac Job Corps students (pictured) served at a White House ceremony recently to help kick off National Hispanic Heritage month. The event was a joint effort between the U.S. Department of Labor and the White House.

“We are excited,” said Potomac Job Corps Center Business and Community Liaison Bryan Nabiyev about the students’ first visit to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

VIP attendees included U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda L. Solis, White House Senior Advisor to the President Valerie Jarrett and Ambassador to El Salvador Maria Del Carmen Aponte.

National Hispanic Heritage month runs from September 15 through October 15, 2010.

Job Corps is a part of the Labor Department’s Employment and Training Administration. It is the nation’s largest career technical training and education program for students ages 16 through 24. Chef Tee runs the Potomac Job Corps’ culinary program. For more information, call 800-733-JOBS (5627) or visit
