The Colorado School Nutrition Association has named Jefferson High School Kitchen Manager Daniel Lukasavitz the 2015 Manager of the Year.
Lukasavitz has worked for District 6 since December of 2011, first in the Central Kitchen and then at Jefferson.
Kara Sample, assistant director of Nutrition Services, nominated Daniel for this honor. In the nomination, Sample said Lukasavitz is always willing to go above and beyond to help students and District 6.
“Dan goes out of his way to interact with the students and build relationships with them,” Sample wrote in the nomination. “Often, Dan will notify the school staff when he feels like there might be a student who needs someone to talk to. It’s the little things that set Dan apart!”
As Colorado’s winner this year, Lukasavitz automatically becomes a nominee for the Southwest Regional Manager of the Year.
