Middle school nutrition manager named top in county


A middle school nutrition manager has been named the top manager in the county by the Fayette County Public Schools Nutrition Program (SNP).

Renee Davis of Flat Rock Middle is the seventh SNP manager to receive the coveted Cheryl Calhoun Manager of the Year Award, established by the SNP department to recognize outstanding achievements of school nutrition managers.

Davis has worked for the school system for 12 years, serving as the school nutrition manager at Fayette Middle School from 2008 until it closed in 2013, and then subsequently moving into the same position at Flat Rock Middle School.

The school system’s nutrition staff nominates and votes on the individual they feel best meets the benchmark criteria for the award. According to Kokeeta Wilder, school nutrition director, Davis exemplifies reliability, dedication and hard work, and she does it all with a positive attitude. 

Named in honor of the school system’s longest serving school nutrition director (22 years) who lost her battle with cancer in January 2007, the Cheryl Calhoun Award recognizes nutrition managers who exemplify the professional qualities demonstrated by Calhoun: dedication, hard work and commitment to excellence.
