Gold Medal dining

Lynchburg College’s Dining Services recently won gold for multiple concepts/outlets in the Loyal E. Horton Dining Awards Contest through the National Association of College & University Food Services.

This is LC’s ninth award in the category of residence hall dining — multiple concepts/outlets for small schools since 2000 and its second gold award; the first was received in 2003. Dining services in this category are judged on menu selection, presentation, marketing, nutritional soundness, and overall impression.

“It is a tremendous honor to have the student dining program here at Lynchburg College recognized nationally by our peers as one of the best programs in the country,” said Jimmy Stamey, director of Dining Services. “This award truly, is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our staff to excellence. We could not compete at such a high level if it were not for the continued support and encouragement from the College community.”

Since LC won the gold for small schools, it is now eligible to win the grand prize for this category competing against the winners of the large schools (University of Rhode Island) and medium schools (University of San Diego). The winner will be announced at the NACUFS National Conference held in San Jose, Calif. July 7-10, 2010.
