The Garfield Re-2 School District is pleased to announce that Mary McPhee will become the new Nutrition Services Director, approved by the board at the May 9, 2017 school board meeting.

McPhee will take over for current Nutritional Services Director Lori VanSlyke who is retiring July 31, 2017 after 24-years in Garfield Re-2. McPhee will officially begin with Garfield Re-2 in July and have a month to work with VanSlyke and gain a deeper understanding of the Nutritional Services Department.

McPhee brings decades of food service experience through her work with Sodexo Services to the District.

“I applied to become the Nutritional Services Director to ‘make a difference’ in the lives of students, the staff and selfishly, my own. I want to love a job again,” McPhee said. “I want to build on the work that the Nutritional Services team has started and bring home-cooked, nutritional meals that the students will want to eat and the parents will feel good about.”

“Lori is passionate about ensuring that every student has a full stomach so that they can learn. Her dedication to the students of the Garfield Re-2 School District is incredible.”— Brent CurticeGarfield Re-2 superintendent

Garfield Re-2 Superintendent Brent Curtice is confident in McPhee’s ability to lead the Nutritional Services Department.

“We are excited to welcome Mary to the Garfield Re-2 family,” said Garfield Re-2 Superintendent Brent Curtice. “She stood out in field of very qualified internal and external candidates. Her experience in leading all aspects of food service organizations creates an exciting opportunity for our Nutrition Services Department.”

Curtice added that Lori VanSlyke will be missed.

“Lori is passionate about ensuring that every student has a full stomach so that they can learn. Her dedication to the students of the Garfield Re-2 School District is incredible. We wish her well as she transitions to her new adventure,” he said.
