Mrs. Obama quoted Director of Child Nutrition Services, Billy Reid during today's celebration. She stated, "But there is one thing that all of you do have in common. And I think that Billy Reid, who is the director of Nutrition Services for the Salida Union School District in California -- he put it best. This is what he said. He said, “I find myself honored to wake up every morning…and go out and feed children.” It's as simple as that -- honored. The honor of feeding our children. (Applause.) And it's that commitment, it's that kind of commitment to our children’s promise -- right? This is our future. Our promise -- the determination to help them all succeed -- that’s something you all share. It's that passion."
Present at the event from Salida Union School District were Board Members Catie Englebright and Virginia Berry, Superintendent Twila Tosh, and Principals Ana Garcia (Sisk), Jeri Passalaqua (SES), and Rex Tschetter (Dena Boer).
