The School Nutrition Association (SNA) recognized two Oregon school nutrition professionals on July 12 at the 69th Annual National Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah. Cindi Hiatt-Henry, school nutrition director with McMinnville School District and Karin Nichols, nutrition manager with Sue Buel Elementary School in McMinnville, received national recognition for their superior accomplishments in the school nutrition arena.
Nichols was presented with the Louise Sublette Manager of the Year award, which recognizes school nutrition managers for the contributions they have made throughout their school nutrition career. Hiatt-Henry was honored with the President’s Award of Achievement, in honor of Thelma Flanagan. SNA recognizes the commitment and dedication individuals who act that state presidents make to SNA, school nutrition and the children whom SNA members serve every day.
Hiatt-Henry also accepted SNA awards for increased membership and certification on behalf of the Oregon School Nutrition Association, for which she serves as immediate past president.
