Shen Junior Lucia Hingi will compete in the National SkillsUSA culinary competition June 14-18 after winning the New York State SkillsUSA competition in April 2021. Lucia is one of three Capital Region BOCES students to win at the state level, earning the right to compete in this month’s national competition. She won by showcasing her cake decorating skills, something she has honed this past school year with the help of her teacher, BOCES culinary graduate and Culinary Institute of America graduate, Erica Weakley.

“It’s pretty cool that I’m following in Ms. Weakley’s footsteps,” Lucia said. “I’m excited to continue to challenge myself and see how I do at nationals.”
