ASD graduate Jordyn Baker recently placed 12th in the WorldSkills competition in Abu Dhabi. The WorldSkills competition gives people under the age of 22 a chance to show off their vocational skills on the world stage. Baker represented America in the bread-baking category.
Baker qualified by winning the Alaska SkillsUSA competition as well as the U.S. national title. She practiced for months with her coach, King Career Center Instruction Kellie Puff to hone her skills for this intense competition.
According to an interview she gave with the Wall Street Journal, she produced four braided-bread loaves, six focaccia, 10 basil-pesto rolls, 15 quiches, and enough dough for a dozen rye-bread loaves and several of orange-cranberry bread within a matter of hours.
