On March 16, Ohio County Schools Superintendent Kimberly Miller could not have been more proud of the school system’s staff of service employees.
Cooks and custodians worked with administrators to prepare take-home meals for thousands of students as schools remain closed due to the COVID-19 threat. Miller said she was pleased to see how efficiently and effectively the staff members worked on behalf of Ohio Schools students. All told, the school system provided 4,077 meals on Monday.
“I was so thrilled with the effort and attitude of our service staff today,” she said. “They were very positive, and they were able to meet a great demand on short notice. They provided meals for thousands of students today, and they should be very proud of what they accomplished.”
Ohio County Schools Child Nutrition Director Renee Griffin said her staff members were well aware that their work was of significant importance today. She said the efforts of those staff members made her especially proud to be a part of the school system’s child nutrition department.
“Everyone stepped up and knew what they had to get done,” Griffin said. “They worked as team, and everything was so well prepared. It was amazing to see that type of teamwork in action.”
