CELEBRATING INTEAM’S PAST AND FUTURE AT SNIC
Every New Year brings excitement and new beginnings, but it also allows us to reflect on the old beginnings as well. What a perfect way to start 2016 with the School Nutrition Association’s FAME awards at SNIC in San Diego, CA. This year, we celebrated Dorothy “Dot” Pannell-Martin as she received the Gertrude Applebaum Lifetime Achievement Award; which was awarded by none other than Gertrude Applebaum herself. This was a very exciting event for inTEAM Associates to come together and celebrate these two ladies; which are pioneers of the school foodservice profession and were the founders of inTEAM in 1994. It was also a time to reflect on the progress and impact inTEAM has made as a company in the school nutrition arena; and to make plans for the future.
“I’m so pleased to see Dot and Gert’s long-standing partnership recognized during the FAME awards. Their collective vision and published works continue to guide today’s inTEAM products and services as we all move together into the digital age. – Chip Goodman, CEO inTEAM
