School Nutrition Awards Stars of Excellence

Clarke cafeteria earns starHay Branch cafeteria earns star
















A large, loud group of Killeen ISD School Nutrition employees surprised some high-performance school cafeteria staff members with awards for a job well done.


The group honored the cafeteria staff at Hay Branch, Saegert, Palo Alto and Clarke on Tuesday, awarding the department’s first-ever Stars of Excellence.


School Nutrition Director Steve Smith said the four cafeterias received perfect ratings during the last four inspection reviews.


Supervisors rank each cafeteria in 10 areas of operation. A perfect 10 results in a star for the month. Four stars results in recognition and a team treat.


Smith said the award program was important to raise standards of excellence in the cafeterias to support student learning and to celebrate hard-working nutrition employees.
