On Saturday, November 5th, 2016 our Nutrition Services Kitchen Manager Kristy Ortega was in a four-wheeler accident. She sustained multiple injuries with the most sever being a broken pelvis in five places. Needless to say, as a team we were facing our biggest adversity our department had seen.
On Sunday, November 6th I called for a department head meeting to create a plan to dissect Kristy’s job and to try to maintain our high operational standards and customer’s expectations.
Head Cook Judy Wallis and Head Cashier Nicole Ricks stepped up and provided the necessary leadership and teamwork so our department didn’t skip a beat.
Lou Holtz once said “Show me someone that has done something worthwhile, I will show you someone that has overcome adversity!”
Converse County School District #1 would like to thank you for your teamwork, dedication, and commitment to our Nutrition Services Department continued success.
