CIC's Judy Brown Featured in The Post & Courier

Lexington Mom Doesn't Let 100-Mile Commute Deter Her from Attending Culinary School
By Brenda Rindge The Post and Courier Monday, February 22, 2010

"One day in the fall of 2006, Judy Brown left her Lexington home to start college. Just three weeks after abdominal surgery to repair multiple hernias, Brown drove two hours to Trident Technical College and attended classes. That afternoon, she drove back home. She knew that going to college was a luxury. "It was hard to work it out with everybody's schedule," says Brown, mom of Harrison, 18, who will graduate from high school this year; Allison, 13, a seventh-grader; and Stephie, 7, a second-grader.

"In the 3 1/2 years since, she has continued to commute 100-plus miles each way to classes at the Culinary Institute of Charleston at Trident Technical College, some semesters as often as four times a week. ...

"While she was going to school, she often worked part-time for caterers. She now teaches at Trident Tech and was recently hired as director of food services for the new South Carolina State Farmers Market, opening in June. She also leads cooking projects in her children's classes and volunteers at Fort Jackson, making graduation cakes for soldiers."
