UMW Dining’s Flo Brown Wins National Award

Congratulations are due Carolyn “Flo” Brown, salad supervisor for UMW’s Campus Dining Services, for being selected as the Sodexo Experience National Winner for January 2016. Flo was first selected as the UMW Campus Dining award winner, and then she went on to win Sodexo’s district, regional and national competitions.  The national winner is selected from more than 600 nominees from colleges and universities across the United States, making this a tremendous feat.

Flo has been with Sodexo in food preparation for more than 17 years and exemplifies the excellence that Sodexo strives to provide for their valued guests – every meal, every day.  Roy Platt, general manager of UMW Dining Services, stated:  “We were faced with an incredible challenge in January when campus closed down due to the snowstorm. I am extremely thankful that we had Flo to help fill all the gaps in staffing. She does great work every day, but during this emergency situation she was absolutely outstanding!”
