HRTM FEATURE

Master SommeliersA trio of master sommeliers that visit only six universities in the entire country were on campus in early March to test students in the School of Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism Management (HRTM) "s advanced wine course.

Two full days of instruction by master sommeliers Fred Dame, Andy McNamara and Drew Hendricks culminated in an assessment of the HRTM 575 students where their knowledge was put to the test at the McCutchen House on the USC Horseshoe.

Taught by Dr. Sandy Strick, the course accounts for 30 percent of the entire class grade and was passed by all 18 students. In addition, all of Strick "s industry partners also passed the course. Local beverage distributor and College of HRSM partner Ben Arnold provided the wine for the course and has been a huge asset to Strick and the class.

"Being selected as one of only six schools in the entire country to be visited by these industry experts is pretty special for this program,” said Strick. "We have forged a great relationship with these master sommeliers over the last several years. As part of our curriculum, this course has opened several opportunities for many of our undergraduate and graduate students, who have gone on to the next level and succeeded.”
