News From the Wolverine Dining Hall!!

News From the Wolverine Dining Hall!!!

First of all, I want to say how excited I am for this opportunity to be able to do this.

Let me introduce myself, my name is Ken Bright I was born and raised in Pittsburgh Pa and grew up in Nebraska. I graduated from Crete in 2000 and had no real direction in life. However, I enjoyed being in the kitchen with my dad. So, I decided to join the Army as a Food Service Specialist. Crazy Right!! I enjoyed it!! Learned a lot and had awesome leaders above me! Fast-forward 3 years and 3 deployments later. As you can tell with the years it was a crazy time in the world. I didn’t have time to prepare for the future outside of the Army so I decided to stay in for a few more years!! So, 4 more deployments and 3 more years later I decided it was time.

July 3, 2006 I was officially out of the Military. That was the year My wife Renae and I started dating for the 2nd time!! (We dated in High School then decided to go our separate ways and explore the world!) Got engaged at Disney Word in 2008, married in 2009. We have 2 pretty awesome daughters Olivia 11 who will be going into 6th grade and Adisyn 9 who will be in 4th grade.

After I got out I went to college for Dietary but then received a job offer I couldn’t refuse and switched my classes to Business and graduated with a Business Degree.

This year will be a bit challenging as there are shortage of drivers in all the food vendors we use. I received my first order in today and was already shorted on Frosted Flakes as the manufactures are struggling to make their orders.

This year will also be a little different. We will have a Theme Week during each month. End of August into the being September will be State Fair Week. With the August menu being out in Middle of July as it had to be in the Newsletter there will be a minor menu change.

Week beginning Aug 30th thru Sept 3rd

Monday Aug 30th      Nachos

Tuesday Aug 31st    Chili Dogs

Wednesday Sept 1st    Pretzel Bites

Thursday Sept 2nd  Corn Dogs

Friday Sept 3rd  Pizza


Please if there are any concerns with anything dietary with your child and the meals here at Wolverine Dining Hall please reach out to me.
