CCMS Cafeteria Manager Wins School Nutrition Champion Award

CCMS Cafeteria Manager Wins School Nutrition Champion Award

Ramona Freeman has been named a 2021 School Nutrition Champion by The Dairy Alliance. Freeman is a cafeteria manager at Calloway County Middle School and is in her 20th year working in the kitchen at the school.

Freeman received a plaque from The Dairy Alliance, along with a letter apologizing for the delayed notification. In the letter, she is thanked for her "contribution to ensuring school meals are a vital part of every student's education."

Freeman was nominated by former Calloway County Director of Food Service Pat Lane, who wrote, "Ramona works to help our students. She doesn't back away from a challenge. She is always on the front line. Constantly working on meal components, delivery challenges, or employee issues. She is amazing!"

Calloway County Director of Food Service Megan Adams believes Freeman is deserving of the award.

“Ramona is a dedicated and hardworking employee," Adams said. She is always open to new ideas and always responds with a positive 'We will try it!'  She never hesitates to go above and beyond on anything. We are so lucky to have her and her dedication to her students, kitchen, and staff of Calloway County Middle School. She has been with the school for 20 years and we hope we have her for many more! She is an asset to Calloway County Schools!”
