Sharon Gendron substitutes in school kitchens now, but her experience spans more than 25 years, 11 of those years with Humboldt Unified School District.

The HUSD governing board honored Gendron at its meeting on July 9 where she received the VIP of the Month award for classified staff.

Director of Food and Nutrition Tami Hitt-Wyant recommended Gendron for the award based on her and others' recognition of the good work and attitude Gendron carries into her job when the 7 a.m. urgent call comes in for help.

Gendron retired as kitchen manager at Bradshaw Mountain Middle School in 2009 and has been substituting in all of the district's nine schools ever since. Her skills run from clerking to computers to, of course, cooking.

"She is also willing to do floors and dishes to get the job done," Hitt-Wyant said. "There's nothing this Lunch Lady superhero can't do."

"It is one thing to have the skill set to accomplish the task of serving school meals; it is another to do it with an attitude that ensures your co-workers and customers - our students - feel supported and appreciated," she added.
