About the staff

The Nutrition Services department is headed by Cindi Hiatt-Henry (left), winner of the School Nutrition Association’s 2014 Oregon Outstanding Director of the Year and the Northwest Region’s Outstanding Director of the Year.  Soon after, she was profiled in an extended feature in the News-Register.

In 2015, Buel Elementary’s Karin Nichols was named Oregon’s Nutrition Manager of the Year.  Both Nichols and co-worker Marilyn Larson were recognized that year for saving the life of a student who was choking.

Students have shown their appreciation as well.  In January 2016, MHS Leadership students honored the kitchen staff (pictured, right) with flowers and a note of appreciation that read "I love your cooking. Don't stop making good food. You're making my dreams come true and my stomach full!"
