The organization is anxious to not only raise monies for the scholarships, but to recruit students. The amounts of the scholarships will depend on needs. For further information on these scholarships, you can contact Gary Patterson. Next year’s conference will be held at Shenandoah Valley Academy in New Market, Virginia. This year’s meeting was hosted by Dawn Fagan, director of food service at Campion Academy, and her assistants.
As part of the yearly conference the AFSA had the opportunity to visit the Celestial Seasonings factory, the Madhava Sweeteners facilities, and tour the Culinary Institute of Arts. They benefited from presentations on the “new” Kuehls and “Keeping Yourself Healthy,” and by Food Services of America. The group also was able to discuss students’ special dietary needs and how to keep a servant attitude without being “abused.” On a less strenuous note, they were able to spend some time in the Rocky Mountain National Park.
