Meet Ricky Dixion
Common Threads Miami Program Alum Now Proud Volunteer
Ricky Dixon is a 15-year-old freshman at Miami Central Senior High School, who shares a unique passion for cooking and serving his community.
Five years ago, Ricky was enrolled in chef instructor Mimi Chacin’s Common Threads Cooking Skills & World Cuisine course as a fourth grader at Carrie P. Meek Westview K-8 Center. Cooking Skills & World Cuisine is Common Threads’ after-school program that engages the tastes and minds of students while exploring the culture and cuisine of different countries. It was in this class that Ricky found his love for cooking and his passion for serving.
The experience from Cooking Skills & World Cuisine made such an inspiration on Ricky that he stepped up to be a volunteer for the program when he entered high school.
