Spotlight on DHS Graduates - Christina Fasanello

Christina is a 2012 graduate from Discovery High School. After graduating, she attended Appalachian State University where she obtained a degree in Anthropology: Social Practice and Sustainability. She says she is currently an "Executive Sous Chef: Black Cat Bistro in Boulder, Colorado. I have been working for Black Cat & Bramble Hare Restaurants for a little under two years now. We are a certified organic farm to table operation that raises pork, lamb, and a myriad of produce on over 675 acres of farm land. As of July 2020, we changed our format from in-house fine dining to an outdoor family style experience on the Skokan family farm as a result of the ever-changing COVID-19 restrictions in Colorado. With this change, I became in charge of the menu creation, food prep, and front of house management for these dinners. In addition, we have created 12 heated cabanas (which I did the drafting and design) to help us continue on into the colder winter months. These dinners are a true farm-to-table experience, and all of our vegetables as well as meat comes from the pastures that these cabanas overlook. Over the past two years, I was the head chef of Bramble and Hare, a Farm Hand, the manager of Mabel the farm truck, and eventually transitioned into the Farm Dinner role as described above. It's been a really incredible experience as I cooked through college while studying sustainable design and agriculture. I am also working towards an Associate's degree in Drafting / AutoCAD with hopes of getting into a Master's of Architecture program. In graduate school I am looking into studying 'what does post pandemic dining look like?'" Christina says her favorite memories of DHS are presenting her Senior Paper, AP US Government, and Enrichments.

Spotlight on DHS Graduates - Katie Hitchcock

Katie is a 2012 graduate from Discovery High School. Following graduation, she attended CVCC where she had a focus on Early Education. She says, "I homeschool my 3 daughters! I have a 7 year old and 4 year old twins. We are in our third year of home education, and I love it! I also work from home selling second hand clothing and home decor online." She says her favorite memory at DHS is "having a sense of community. My favorite times of the week were family and community days! Having these times to interact with our peers and teachers allowed us to build better relationships. I believe having those relationships led to better classroom experiences."
