Christell’s Captions

Christell Hicks, President 2018-19Happy New Year!!! We’ve made it to the second half of our journey for the 2018/2019 school year. Let’s continue pushing forward and provide our students of this awesome state with great nutritious, tasty meals and outstanding customer service. Thanks to everyone for making the 49th annual MSNA Conference in Natchez, MS such a success. I believe that everyone went above and beyond. I appreciate each and every one of you. And I hope that all of our members had a spectacular time.
SNA Legislative Action Conference in Washington, DC is upon us. It is always an exciting time to share with our state representatives all the wonderful things that we are accomplishing in child nutrition. It is also rewarding when we are able to educate those who may not understand what we do and are so open to hear us and ask questions in regards to what we do and the importance of child nutrition.

Hope to see you at MSNA 2019 Nutrition Education Seminar in Tupelo, MS, April 11, 2019. This will be a very rewarding seminar with lots of great things for you to take back to your districts.

Let’s not forget to keep pushing membership. We are up for the year, compared to last year at this time. We are also #6 on the State Membership Growth Rankings Chart in our division out of 19 states. Let’s get out there and spread the good news about MSNA and increase that ranking to #1.

Thanks for allowing me to represent you as your MSNA President. I appreciate you and all that you do for the children here in Mississippi. Please feel free to reach out to me if I can be of any assistance to you!

Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts. – Winston Churchill

Thank you for all that you do,
