Congratulations to our nutrition department on their Golden Radish Award!

Their application was reviewed by a six member committee representing the Georgia Dept. of Education, Georgia Dept. of Agriculture, Georgia Dept. of Public Health, and Georgia Organics and the committee was particularly impressed by their commitment to the farm to school program.

Earlier today, representatives from the district were at the State Capitol where they received their award from State Superintendent John Barge, Commissioner of Agriculture Gary Black, Commissioner of Public Health Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald, and Georgia Organics Board Chair Mandy Mahoney. During tonight’s Board of Education meeting I will recognize our volunteers and partners in the district who keep our farm to school program thriving.  This award comes on the heels of their Georgia USDA Best Practice Award last month!

Congratulations to our Director of Nutrition, Dr. Marilyn Hughes and everyone involved!  Keep up the good work.
