The Greater Austin Restaurant Association chapter of the Texas Restaurant Association presented Round Rock culinary student Gabriel Russ a $5000 scholarship at their board meeting last week. The Round Rock High School graduate will continue his pursuit of a career in culinary arts and restaurant management.
"The passion, knowledge, and dedication of Texas ProStart competitors like Gabriel Russ is very inspiring to me," said Skeeter Miller, Country Line BBQ owner and Greater Austin Restaurant Association chapter president. "Supporting their continued education is essential to the future of our industry." The association members generated this year's scholarship funds with their annual golf tournament and the recent Eat. Drink. Woman Celebration showcasing the talents of Austin women chefs.
