PIERCETON — Lunch ladies may not be the first people who come to mind when thinking of those positions that make big differences in schools.
But for Karen Moore, head cook at Pierceton Elementary School, a 21-year career feeding children has led to success in the classroom.
“Karen is a difference maker because of the task she fulfills each day,” said PES Principal Nathan Polston. “We would have a lot of upset and hungry students and staff if it wasn’t for Karen. It takes a lot of people to run a building. There are many behind the scene jobs that take place but aren’t necessarily noticed. She does a great job of fulfilling her task without expecting any limelight.”
Preparing meals and coordinating a kitchen staff could be a daunting task, but Polston said Moore takes on the challenge with a positive attitude and a know-how that comes with time and attention to detail.
“She does her best at preparing meals she knows the staff and students enjoy,” said Polston.
