Monday Mission, December 11, 2017
(With all the fun in the snow on the quad, I knew they would soon be hungry!) In the cafeteria, half-lit through the windows at the front of the room, I found Michael Scheffres and his staff, calmly proceeding with meal preparations and making contingency plans for whatever circumstances might lie ahead. Though employees of Sodexo, our food service provider, they were demonstrating on Friday morning that their primary interest was taking care of Samford students.
The world is better because of the men and women who provide our meals each day, sometimes under challenging circumstances.
