Meet Hannah Sevy, fastest knife in the Northwest

Published: Monday, March 17, 2014 at 03:43 PM.

Hannah planned to attend the University of West Florida for a year, get a job, save money for tuition, transfer to Keiser and eventually open a bakery.With her scholarship, she can start pursuing her culinary arts career a year earlier.

Winning the competition wouldn't surprise Hannah's mom, Julie Sevy, boyfriend Chris Rigney, and brothers Braeden, 12, and Tayler, 20, who frequently benefit from her skills.

"I cook dinner a lot," Hannah said. "My boyfriend's, like, over every night to eat."

"She's pretty darn good," Crestview High culinary arts teacher Paula Knight said. "She worked pretty darn hard to win that scholarship."

Hannah praised Knight and the school's ProStart-accredited program.

"I can't imagine schools that don't have a culinary program at all," Hannah said as she tidied up after creating a melon basket. "It makes me sad. I can't imagine not doing this."
