This year marks our 3rd time in Florence..
Our students have invested their summers with Florence University of the Arts studying courses such as Florence Sketchbook, Italian Food & Wine, Italian Language, Retail and Hospitality..
This past summer three of our students were able to go thanks to FUA’s generosity. Their scholarship opportunities gave them the chance to have their ‘impossible’ turn into ‘possible’ and along with 7 other young ladies, discovered what fuels their passion.
They have returned with stories, moments, lessons to tell, to share and tonight they spoke their hearts out to our guests from Harry S. Truman High School. Culinary students with their mentor/instructor Chef Brylski came and joined in this years presentation.

We were so happy to have shared our time with other high school students that believe in their future and work hard towards making it happen..
This year one of Harry S. Truman High School Seniors will have the opportunity to travel to Florence to further their passion for the Culinary Arts..
We at The High School of Fashion Industries have been blessed 3 times and how better to show our appreciation by Passing it On…
to others that love what they do, as much as we do.

As a teacher, I try the best I can to give my students MORE.
Whether it be trips to interesting places that enrich their learning, like the MET, or introducing them to books that can further their understanding, inviting professionals that can advise, motivate and inspire our students is a must in any classroom. The challenge is to find the few that are willing to give back, if only to sit in a class of eager students to share a bit of their wisdom.
