Serving Up A Winner

School culinary team

Teacher Martha Humphreys with her state championship team: Logan Weller, Samantha Thompson, Makayla Schweitzer, and Oregon Culinary Student of the Year Shane Wilder.

Martha Humphreys is going out a winner. Willamette’s long-time Culinary teacher is stepping down as coach after decades leading the competitive program, including a second consecutive state title.

The Willamette Culinary team of Logan Weller, Samantha Thompson, Makayla Schweitzer and Shane Wilder won the 2019 state title by whipping up this meal in less than one hour. They could only use two butane burners and no electric kitchen utensils.

It’s the 4th state Culinary championship for Humphreys.

Plans are already in the works for the national competition in Washington, D.C. Willamette finished 6th in the nation last year.
