The first-ever scholarship winner for Spring 2020 was announced in late January. The Ruby Parker Puckett Scholarship is an opportunity for working foodservice professionals to help further their pursuit of a CDM certification. This scholarship is offered twice a year to one lucky applicant – please join us in celebrating Danielle Davis for winning the very first!


See Recipient Bio Below:

“My name is Danielle Davis I was born and raised in Florida and moved to Kentucky in 2007 with my family. A graduate from Washington County High School, I work at a 59-bed long-term care facility and have found working in the food services department to be a rewarding learning experience. As I begin working towards the next step in a food services career, I look forward to learning new and innovative ideas to incorporate into my everyday work and home life. A big part of my life is caring for my son, my mother and her declining health, and my four younger siblings. I am grateful for the opportunity that this scholarship has presented me with not only academically, but at a chance to better my life.”
