“My passion for students and healthy food run hand in hand so I truly feel privileged to serve Progeny in this capacity. “Lilly Nelson, Enrollment Coordinator and Food Service Manager, Progeny Academy
My name is Lilly Nelson and I serve as the Enrollment Coordinator and Food Service Manager at Progeny Academy. My background includes over thirty years of experience in marketing and food service in catering companies and schools.
I have a deep connection to Progeny Academy as I was part of the founding planning team back in 2016. My passion for students and healthy food run hand in hand so I truly feel privileged to serve Progeny in this capacity.
My goals for this year at Progeny Academy include continuing to grow our community. We are fortunate to have such a supportive community base and I want to increase opportunities for collaboration and support.
Additionally, I hope to expand our food and nutrition program into the classroom so students are able to learn about how nutrition supports their growth and development.
One area that I would highlight about our school to prospective families is our passion for middle school learners. Providing a safe and supportive learning environment is a top priority for all staff. We work diligently to ensure that all academic, social and emotional needs are met for every one of our scholars. This is a collective responsibility held by all staff and is a core value of our school community.
