    The Colorado School Nutrition Association has named Jefferson High School Kitchen Manager Daniel Lukasavitz the 2015 Manager of the Year.

    “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.
