Durgee life skills

Edward Rigdon-Boysuk, right, uses a hand mixer to blend the ingredients for a pumpkin cheese cake, while teaching assistant Martha Stevens supervises at Durgee Junior High School. Students in teacher Wendi Hitchcock's life skill class didn't let a recent power failure deter them from whipping up cheesecakes. Hitchcock said that as students began to make their cakes, the power went out, so they quickly adapted by thinking of alternate ways to prepare the recipe, such as melting butter with hot water and using a hand mixer to blend the ingredients. Once power was restored they were back in business to bake their cakes.
