Nutrition Team Wins at State Conference(June, 2008)

The Nutrition MastermindsProving they do know “beans” about nutrition guidelines, federal law and diet, the Frisco Fury, the FISD Nutrition Department’s Masterminds team won a state contest at the annual state Association of School Nutrition last week in Corpus Christi.

Over 3,000 child nutrition professionals met for a week of personal and professional development.

A new addition to the conference was a “Nutrition Masterminds” contest. School districts from all over the state of Texas formed teams and tackled questions about federal and state program requirements, nutrition, diet, and food, according to FISD’s Debera Tredennick, Director of Child Nutrition.

Frisco ISD’s team, “The Frisco Fury” came from behind in an exciting showdown to emerge as the winners of this contest.” We are looking forward to next year as we defend our title as “Nutrition Masterminds,” Tredennick said. Team members were Jason Meek, nutrition technology supervisor, Shannon Etienne, Nutrition Coordinator, Marcie Behler, training specialist, Nitra Crowder, café manager at Fowler Middle School, Lana Anderson, field supervisor.
