RHINELANDER - Some local college students are cooking their way toward a four-year degree.

Culinary Arts students at Rhinelander's Nicolet College are fired up about the chance to earn a bachelor's degree in their field at UW Stout.

Both schools recently teamed up to allow Nicolet Culinary Arts graduates to transfer their credits toward a BA from the four-year university.

25-year-old Katie Graeber is one of the students who's carving her way toward the plan.

The wife and mother of three says it's a move she's looking forward to.

Katie Graeber, Culinary Arts Student, says, "It's close to home. I'm able to raise my kids and go to school and then have more education and can better myself and my family."

Travis Syverson, Culinary Arts Student, says, "It gives you a good beginning to your education, from here you can go to Stout!"

Both Graeber and Syverson are set to graduate with a Culinary Arts Associate Degree in May of next year.

And Instructor Vicki Mendham says getting to the next step will be easy for them.

Vicki Mendham, Culinary Arts Instructor, says, "I think the articulation agreement gives a really great opportunity for our students to have a seamless transition into a four-year school with UW Stout."

UW Stout is in Menomonie, about a three hour drive west of here.
