Dedicated Nutrition Services employee Blanca Yerena was recognized for her hard work with the November Business Operations Customer Service Impact Award.

The monthly award recognizes HISD Business Operations employees who display exemplary performance, deliver fantastic customer service, and regularly go above and beyond to add value to their division and positively influence co-workers.

As a much-loved team lead at Moreno Elementary School, Yerena has served the children of HISD for nearly 20 years, making sure the school’s cafeteria has everything it needs to run smoothly.

She also oversees the cafeteria at Farias Early Childhood Center and works with other campuses on special projects for Nutrition Services.

”She’s willing to step in and help wherever she is needed,” Nutrition Services Operations Manager Patricia Watkins said. “I really appreciate everything Blanca does. She’s an exceptional employee, and we’re lucky to have her.”

Watkins presented the award to Yerena at a special surprise reception as her team and co-workers looked on.

“I don’t do it by myself. I have some good ladies here. If I’m needed somewhere, I feel like I have to go, but these ladies keep everything going,” Yerena said.

Moreno Food Service Attendance Elva Garza said she was happy to learn Yerena got the award.
“She is the best manager we could have,” Garza said.

Nominations are now being accepted for next month’s Business Operations Customer Service Impact Award.
