ANC Attendees Remember SNA Member Philando Castile


Philando CastileSNA President Jean Ronnei, SNS, led the 6,500 attendees  of SNA's Annual National Conference in a moment of silence for their colleague and fellow member Philando Castile.  Ronnei's comments in recognition of Castile follow:

I would like us to take a moment together to mourn the tragic loss of an incredible champion of school nutrition. As you may be aware, Philando Castile was a valuable member of the St. Paul Public Schools community and served as a cafeteria manager with dedication and passion. He was a graduate of the district and a member of SNA who represented the best of our profession, serving children since 2002. I personally knew Philando to be a dedicated employee, well respected by colleagues, beloved by students and known by all around him as caring and kind. Our hearts go out to Philando's family and friends and to his colleagues and students in St. Paul, who will sorely miss his presence in the cafeteria every day.
