Prince William County Schools / Food Safety is Job #1

The Center for faith-based and community learning located in Charlottesville, Virginia recently served an employee from the Prince William County School System. This was a one on one class since there was only the one person signed up. Our policy is to never cancel a food safety class as long as there is anybody registered.

What impressed me most says's Chef Ralph is the "absolute since of dedication to excellence" of this one employee. She missed the regular exam with her fellow employees although she attended the classes with them. She went online and found the nearest class to Culpeper, VA where she lives and signed up.

On Saturday the day of the class she had paid for the class herself, had to get up early, drive forty miles, and stay all day for the same stuff she had studied for weeks. However, at the end of the day the results payed off with a final exam score of over 90% on her test. She score 100% in every area except two, and those were still close.

With that kind of dedication and commitment, I would have no problems with her as the Food Service Supervisor, baking bread at my kids school. Which I was also surprised to find PWCS also prepares their own food on site and uses local produce. This is just another reason why "Virginia" is such a special place to be.
