Winton Woods City Schools Director of the Child Nutrition Department Mark Docter joined the Warrior team in 2017. Since his arrival, the district and community have been greatly impacted by his dedication to health and nutrition. “He has been a great addition to our team,” said Executive Director of Business Affairs Steve Denny. Superintendent Anthony G. Smith also shared how the students love his food because he is an incredible chef. This is one of the many reasons he was selected for October’s community spirit award.
In 2017, he thought of the innovative idea to convert an old school bus into a meal transportation vehicle to ensure every student received a nutritional boost during the summer. This summer, “Nutrition is the Mission” will be on the road for its third consecutive year to bring nutritious meals to four bus stops in the community with the addition of a wifi hotspot and mobile library. At the October board of education meeting, Smith mentioned Docter’s implementation of increasing the lunch offerings in the schools which include “restaurant quality” food like chicken wings, chicken alfredo, and steak and cheese paninis. “I’m deeply grateful and honored to receive this award,” said Docter. “I couldn’t have asked for a better team.”
