Donna Broner

Food & Nutrition Assistant, Sidney Lanier

I am happily nominating Donna Broner as employee of the month!  Donna has been working here at Lanier since I started 11 years ago and has been the backbone of this kitchen.  Donna is currently our head cook but over the years has worked and mastered every position here.  I could talk endlessly about all of the great things that Donna does in this kitchen but she has been doing them so well for so long, all I can really say is that she does all aspects of her job effortlessly.  

 

      I would really like to talk about the actions that Donna does here at Lanier that flows beyond the kitchen and really connects with our students, administration and staff.  Lanier is a special needs and behavioral school and there are students here that don’t really get the same attention or support in life that most other children get.  I have watched Donna go out of her way and buy Christmas presents for some of the kids here at Lanier over the years that were not in the best environment.  Donna will also give little treats or gifts to kids to encourage them to stay on the right track and not get in trouble.  Donna is the one who remembers everyone’s birthdays and has many times brought in cupcakes or a cake for the occasion.  She will also talk and treat everyone as a friend and will try to help or guide anyone if they want or ask for it.  If the administration or teachers have an event or party at the school Donna will help in getting their needs met with meals being heated and such.  Another unknown aspect to many is that Donna also dances at professional levels and teaches dance classes as well.  Over the years she has hosted free dance classes here at Lanier for all staff members that were willing to come.  She has made many special connections with so many of the staff and students here at Lanier and knows many of them very well outside of work.  

        Donna has made her work position here at Lanier so much more than just coming to work, clocking in, doing her job and leaving.  Lanier can be an emotionally hard environment to work in at times and there are many things that are hard or sad to see and witness here year after year.  At the end of the day I believe Donna helps alleviate some of the hard aspects about working here and helps make the days here brighter for many.  As I write this today, she has turned on the holiday music, just another little touch to help in making this kitchen a special place!
