This Georgetown ISD grad is now the No. 1 teen chef in America

Claire OShoney graduated from East View High School in Georgetown this spring. She has now been named the top teen chef in the country.

GEORGETOWN, Texas — One Georgetown teen with a passion for food is getting national recognition! 

Claire OShoney, a 2021 East View High School graduate, was named one of the top three finalists in the National Culinary Arts competition for the Family Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) organization. OShoney placed first at both the regional and state levels before competing at nationals alongside the best teen chefs from each state. 

Last week, the FCCLA announced that Oshoney had placed in the top three at nationals, making her one of the top teen chefs in the country. On Wednesday, OShoney was announced as the first-place winner.

As for her future plans, OShoney is deciding between studying food sciences and technology at Texas A&M Corpus Christi or, depending on where she ended up placing nationally, moving to New York City to study at the Culinary Institute of America and intern at Le Bernardin.

You can follow OShoney's cooking journey on her Instagram, @little.blonde.chef.
