Walters State Community College To Offer Butchery Program
Walters State Community College is bringing back a lost art. Walters State announced this week they will enroll the first students in their new butchery program which will start in the fall of 2023. The program will be the first meat-cutting program offered by a Tennessee community college and one of only tow programs in the entire state. The butchery program will be part of the Maples Institute for Culinary Arts at Walters State’s Sevier County Campus.
The technical certificate in butchery has been approved by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. Also an apprenticeship program in butchery has been approved by teh Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development. That will be at Harris Country Meats of Greeneville, who has been approved for the program’s first apprenticeship.
The technical certificate in butchery will include a well-rounded curriculum covering different aspects of meat and the fundamentals of culinary arts. Harris Country Meats is glad to see the program come to light as they say that butchery has become almost a lost art. details are available at Walters State.
