During its April meeting, the Kannapolis City Board of Education was proud to honor Jackson Park Cafeteria Manager, Jodi Henthorn, for her excellence and dedication. 

Jodi Henthorn is a truly outstanding cafeteria manager at Jackson Park Elementary. During her three years at Jackson Park, she has made a tremendous difference for students.  The School Nutrition Director, Anne Treanor, says it this way, “Jodi is an exceptional cafeteria manager and KCS employee. She not only has the respect of her fellow cafeteria employees but the entire Jackson Park school staff!”  She makes it her daily mission to make sure the cafeteria environment is welcoming and a place where students can enjoy good, wholesome meals with their friends.

Jodi has gone above and beyond to make the Jackson Park cafeteria the best it can be. She recently started a Second Chance breakfast program, which allows 4th and 5th graders to eat breakfast later in the morning. Students go to a mobile breakfast cart that has a variety of grab-and-go foods. The students love it, and breakfast participation at Jackson Park has increased by 34%. 

Jodi also makes sure everyone in the cafeteria is treated well and greeted with a smile. Preparing hundreds of meals a day is a daunting task, but she and her staff accomplish it with the highest level of professionalism.
