  • Young Alum Pursuing Passion He Studied During Senior Project

    Joe Armagno '14 is pursuing his passion – a passion for the culinary arts that he says he discovered while at Gilmour and was able to pursue further during his senior project. Since graduating, Joe has remained connected to Dr. Vaughn and Dr. Vaughn recently introduced Joe to current Gilmour parent – and James Beard Award-winning chef – Jonathan Sawyer. Thanks to that introduction, Joe is now working in one of Chef Sawyer’s restaurants – The Greenhouse Tavern.

    After graduating from Gilmour, Joe studied culinary management at the University of Akron for two years and then transferred to the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. He takes his courses online so that he can work in Cleveland while attending school.

    Joe started at Greenhouse Tavern as a fry cook, moved up the grill and is currently training to work the pastry station. He helps the chefs come up with the daily specials based upon the ingredients the restaurant has on hand. However, if he wants to try something unique, the chefs will order special ingredients and let him experiment.

    Joe says that he has learned a great deal about building levels of flavor into a dish and believes that it all starts with the ingredients used. One of the reasons he enjoys working at Greenhouse Tavern is because the restaurant is a 100 percent locally sourced, organic restaurant, so it only uses the freshest seasonal ingredients and changes its menu frequently. He also loves that when planning the menu, the chefs look for the cooks’ input and they all brainstorm to create the best dining experience possible for the customer.

    Next stop? After graduating, Joe would love to spend a year or two training under a chef in Europe to build on what he’s learned from Chef Sawyer and his team.

    Patrick Mohorcic '14
    , a senior at The College of Wooster majoring in political science and minoring in business economics, is a three-year starter on the football team on the offensive line. He is also living the Gilmour mission each day – creating a more humane and just society – and people are taking notice. In the past month, he has been nominated for two huge honors.
     
    First, he was named to the prestigious Allstate AFCA Good Works Team®. Only 22 college football players are named to this team annually. Read more about this award. Also, be sure to vote for Patrick as team captain!
     
    Just a week later, the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame (NFF) named Patrick as one of the 181 semifinalists for the 2017 William V. Campbell Trophy®. The award recognizes an individual as the absolute best football scholar-athlete in the nation. Learn more about this award here.
     
    Patrick was selected for both of these honors for the variety of initiatives he’s involved in off the field. He helped revitalize an organization at Wooster that advocates for the prevention of sexual violence on campus. He was nominated by faculty members and his peers to participate in Wooster’s “Student Leadership Institute” and he is a founding member of “ScotsCare,” a student organization that builds a connection between Wooster athletics and students with special needs at Wooster.
     
    We’re so proud of you and the work you’re doing to bring about change, Patrick!
