Julio Chavez ‘18
Culinary Arts Management (BBA)
Julio had a humble beginning in rural Mexico. His parents decided to immigrate into the U.S. so their six children could have an education. With a love of cooking, Julio enrolled in SUNY Delhi’s 4-year program in Culinary Arts Management. He was active on campus and excelled in the culinary program. Julio made it to the college hot food competition team which allowed him to travel across the county. Most remarkably, Julio won the National ACF Student Chef of the Year 2018 title in New Orleans, LA, receiving a great deal of publicity nationally. He graduated with many job offers and is pursuing a brilliant career as a chef with dreams of opening his own Mexican restaurant one day.
