The announcement will take place during the DMACC Newton Campus Annual Holiday Celebration.
Newton Campus Provost Joe DeHart, chefs from the Iowa Culinary Institute® (ici®) and students will announce the Iowa Culinary Institute® new Baking and Pastry Arts at the DMACC Newton Campus beginning in the Fall 2020. The new program is starting thanks to a major gift from the Helen Diehl estate. Helen and her husband John were local business leaders and long-time Newton residents.
The baking program will offer a one-year diploma where students will learn many facets of baking, from using baking tools and recipe development to learning about nutrition and using fresh ingredients. The well-rounded graduates will become skilled baking artisans.
The announcement will be part of the Newton Campus Annual Holiday Celebration where people of all ages can help decorate a giant gingerbread house. There will also be cookies, hot cocoa, movies and children’s books. Santa is rumored to be making a stop to greet visitors. The public‘s invited to the Holiday Celebration. Last year, more than 200 people attended the Holiday event.
