An Omission: When Saying “Thank You,” Don’t Forget the Kitchen
I forgot the kitchen.
When I finished a piece on the end of the year transitions earlier today, I forgot to mention the kitchen. Luckily, the folks at Midland School jogged my memory with a warm appreciation of the school’s cook, Gloria Murillo.
Never underestimate the importance of good food in a boarding school. Good food puts everyone at ease; makes everyone happy; and, can serve as the focal point or catalyst for great eating experiences and the conversations that follow.
A “VideOde to Gloria Murillo,” captures the Midland community’s appreciation for their talented cook who enriches their lives and makes their days easier and better. It’s testament to the importance, power and influence of her daily efforts.
Like the folks at Midland, make sure to thank your school cooks. They’re in the kitchen before most students and faculty arise and they’re still there at the end of the day.
