Sherry Benton, assistant manager
Riverview (Pa.) School District/Metz Culinary Management
Nominator: Larry Stelitano, district manager, Metz Culinary Management
“Sherry is the embodiment of a food service hero. She has been an employee of Metz Culinary Management for 13 years. In that time, through hard work and merit, she worked her way to the top and currently serves as Assistant Manager at Riverview School District.
I have never seen an employee wear so many hats and have the ability to execute each role with precision and true passion. On a given day, Sherry is the site manager, satellite program coordinator, prep cook, cook, caterer, cashier, and dishwasher, among other tasks. We have been short-staffed for the entirety of this school year, and she has absorbed the responsibility of these vacancies without question or complaint. I have never met anyone more prideful, dedicated, and hardworking. Her standards are top-notch; she settles for nothing less than perfect. Honoring Sherry as a food service hero would be the perfect way to show her how important she is and how truly appreciated she is by the Riverview School District and Metz Culinary Management!”
