The Board of Education approved Lisa Dillon as the district’s Director of School Nutrition in a meeting on September 6. Dillon is currently a Family and Consumer Science teacher at West Stokes High School and has served in this role since 2001. She earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Home Economics from the University of NC at Greensboro in 1982 and completed add-on licensure at North Carolina Central University in 2003. In 2016 Dillon completed a Master’s in School Administration from Gardner-Webb University.
Assistant Superintendent Tony George, who oversees Operations Programs, stated there are many new regulations and standards in the area of school nutrition. The program is self-supported by the meals served daily in our schools. Yet, employees are all working harder than ever to ensure our students receive nutritious meals everyday and are providing the best customer service to our number one customer, our students. I am confident Dillon will continue to lead and uphold the excellent reputation held by our Nutrition Department at the Central Office level and in our schools.
Superintendent Brad Rice added it is a pleasure to have Dillon joining the School Nutrition Program. Dillon has the leadership qualities that will keep the Program strong and moving in the right direction.
Dillon is slated to begin her new position on September 7. Dillon stated she is excited about this opportunity and looks forward to meeting all school nutrition employees and working collaboratively with schools and families.
Dillon resides in King and is married to Bryan Dillon. They have two sons. Dillon can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org .
