(Carrollton, Ga. April 29, 2016) Carroll County School Nutrition employees attended the Sixty First Annual School Nutrition Association Conference in Savannah Georgia April 14‐17, 2016. The main purpose of the Georgia School Nutrition Association conference is to honor school districts and SN employees that go the extra mile to support, promote, and teach the goals and purpose of the Georgia School Nutrition Association. The theme for this year’s conference was “We Are One; Georgia Strong” which says we speak as one, we move forward as one, so therefore we are connected as one mighty and powerful voice.

The POA contains five pillars the chapters are judged on: 1. Education and Professional Development 2. Public Image 3. Advocacy 4. Community 5. Membership. Under the leadership of local president, Sandra McCormick, Carroll County brought home the GOLD Scroll!
