Karen House, cafeteria manager at North High School, is the recipient of the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation’s February Cause for Applause award. The award seeks to recognize individuals who go above and beyond their normal job responsibilities.
Andrea Gordon, teacher at North High School, says that Karen and the entire cafeteria staff consistently go above and beyond, providing the best lunches around, but doing so with the best attitude. “They always go out of their way to talk to my class and truly care about them,” Gordon said. Gordon sited other special things the cafeteria staff does for her class, including purchasing Christmas gifts and adding small, personal touches to their lunches.
“These ladies provide so much more than just lunch for my students,” Gordon said. “They provide love, friendship, encouragement and support. We are so lucky to have such wonderful ladies working at NHS.”
