Although it's a very important part of the CP landscape, the cafeteria does not often get the attention and thanks that it deserves. For example, this year the staff under the direction of Jill Pollard has had to totally revamp the menu to fall in line with new Federal guidelines. Students are now seeing only whole wheat breads and more fruits and vegetables in their daily meals.
These changes don't always come fully accepted by all students but the nutritional health of students is always very important to all of us at Clinton Prairie. To this extent I would like to take a minute to thank all of the kitchen staff for their dedicated service and specifically two ladies who have combined for over 50 years of service to students of Clinton Prairie. Mrs. Beth Conklin has worked for the past 28 years in the kitchen and Mrs. Bonnie Joseph has accumulated 26 years of service. Dedicated individuals such as these two ladies are why people send their kids to Clinton Prairie and why we have a very low turnover rate with our employees. Clinton Prairie is a great place to work!
