Rachael Ray's talk show today - it sounds like it will be an inspiring episode. We get to see Rach reward a hard working culinary arts teacher with a visit from Bobby Flay and, more importantly, an extreme kitchen makeover for her school classroom by Carter Oosterhouse.
Wilma Stephenson's of Frankford High School was featured in a documentary film called Pressure Cooker, which is how Rachael discovered her. She gets all of her students to graduate despite the dismal statistic that 40 percent of the students at the high school don't make it to their senior year. She also helps her students get partial or full scholarships to culinary school.
Rach's Yum-o! non-profit organization and its partner, The National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation, also gave Stephenson's graduating seniors $5,000 scholarships to attend a culinary arts program of their choice. Good work, Rach.
