A Word From The 2018 ANC Grant Winner

What a whirlwind. The opportunity I had with SNA of MA First Timer Grant and the unbelievable ANC experience in Las Vegas was invaluable.  Bright Ideas was the theme and boy oh boy did they deliver. I started with the educational sessions right out of the gate arriving to an 8 am Prescriptions for a Healthy Team and it was non-stop from there! I heard from exceptional speakers and conversed with colleagues and friends throughout each day. The energy and enthusiasm we all have is contagious.  Each session I attended gave me the uplift and knowledge to take back to my own district.

I was honored to be at the Red Carpet Award Ceremony and to cheer on our wonderful out going SNA of MA President and my friend, Diane Zak.

We also heard from inspiring guest speakers like Chef Jeff Henderson and Journalist Gayle King.  Their stories gave us affirmation that we ARE in one of the best professions ever – School Nutrition!
And I cannot forget the vendors. What great (“bright”) ideas and products we have to look forward too.  The Exhibit Hall was beyond expectation.  The ideas and products that we were able to see, taste or touch were boundless.

Lastly, fun was sprinkled in with some sightseeing and free time with colleagues that I am blessed to call friends!  The ANC Closing Event, Michael Jackson ONE, was just plain AMAZING. 
With such comradery developed throughout ANC2018, we know each one of us can be called upon at any time for help and support of one another.

Thank you SNA of MA for this opportunity and all for the continuous support you provide our members.

“See you in St. Louis!” ~ ANC2019
