Today marks a historic milestone for Southside ISD as its culinary program has been honored with the prestigious United States Congressional Achievement Recognition. It’s a great honor, that helps recognize their victory at the Annual Paella Competition, clinching 1st place. As a result, they’ve earned a fully paid trip to New York City, where they will have the opportunity to visit one of the nation’s top culinary schools.

At the helm of this exceptional achievement is a dedicated leader, Chef Angel Machado, who has guided a group of outstanding young culinarians toward excellence. Their hard work, passion, and culinary expertise have not only brought them recognition but have also captured the hearts of many.

A heartfelt thank you extends to the Office of US Congressman Henry Cuéllar for bestowing this prestigious honor upon the Southside High culinary program. Additionally, Representative John Lujan for his unwavering support and the special state recognition he provided to each student, and for our Southside community has been instrumental in this achievement.
