Nutrition Coordinator Highlight
Sara Duncan: I started at the Crim in January of 2010 as an intern for the Youth Department. It has been awesome to see the Crim and the Programs Department grow, and to see the extent of our impact throughout the community. I've been around long enough that I've had some students multiple times or at different schools. It is so rewarding to have a student remember me after the brief amount of time I spent in their classroom years ago. I love seeing how proud students are of themselves for trying a new food! Being brave to try something new extends beyond trying foods, it gives the child confidence to try other activities that may scare them or make them nervous! I am the Program Coordinator at International Academy of Flint and Greater Heights Academy.
