Dr. B.'s BBQ Institute & Ryan's Wish Fundraiser

Superintendent Ed Bouquillon led his annual "Dr. B.'s BBQ Institute" with the Culinary Arts and Hospitality students on April 13, 2022. Outside of work, Dr. B. leads a professional barbeque team that competes nationally. Each year, he teaches the students how to properly prepare and smoke barbeque that is sold to the public through The District Restaurant. Minuteman is likely the only high school in the state with a BBQ smoker in its culinary arts kitchen.

In 2022, the institute was used to hold the annual Ryan's Wish Fundraiser in memory of Ryan Eaton, a 2014 Culinary Arts graduate. The annual Ryan's Wish event raises money for Minuteman senior scholarships.

This year, the BBQ-themed fundraiser was held for both lunch and dinner service in the restaurant. A live band was brought in to entertain the dinner crow. Dr. Bouquillon is retiring in June.

Special thanks to the Culinary Arts students for doing a fantastic job, along with Culinary Arts teachers Marty McElhinney, Anita Currier, and Dan Charboneau.
