It was a tough way to judge a contest but students, faculty and staff were up to the challenge during the recent Alumni Association Bake-Off. No one crumbled under the pressure, unless it was the pressure of choosing their favorite sweet treat, with students, faculty and staff turning out for the tasty voting. After a hard fought battle that brought in close to $800 for QCC Alumni Scholarship Fund, thanks in part to a simultaneous bake sale and raffle drawing, the following people were crowned the 2020 QCC Bake-Off winners from the college’s main campus:

  • 1st Place: Salted Chocolate Caramel Cookies, created by Director of Disability Services, Kristie Proctor
  • 2nd Place: Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookies, created by QCC Rad Tech student, Jennifer Mangrum
  • 3rd Place: Cheesecake Brownies, created by QCC Financial Aid Counselor, Kirstie Leonard

QCC Healthcare and Workforce Development Center Bake-Off Contest Winners included:

  • 1st Place:  Strawberry Rhubarb Cheesecake Squares created by QCC Alumna, Cheryl Letson
  • 2nd Place:  Carrot Cake created by Professor of Nurse Education, Patricia Creelman
  • 3rd Place: Gluten-Free Cheesecake created by Bronwyn Teixeira, Math & Science Department

Winners received an exclusive QCC cutting board, custom-made for the event in QCC Fab lab.
