Dwayne Chung Presented with Shining Star Award from CREC, CT

Dwayne Chung, Whitsons GM for CREC, CT, recently received the prestigious “Shining Star Award” from the client he and his team serve, Capitol Region Education Council.  

Dwayne was surprised and humbled by the award from CREC, which is rarely given to an outside vendor. Dwayne has immersed himself in the CREC community, which consists of magnet schools located throughout the state of Connecticut. “Not only does he exemplify consistent commitment to our children, families and staff by providing exceptional customer service and fresh, nutritious and delicious meals, but he also shows respect for all individuals and demonstrates the ability to work with others in all capacities with a smile on his face,” said Kayleen Perez, CREC Food Services Program Coordinator. 

“This speaks volumes about the way Dwayne approaches each and every day,” said Jeffrey Taddeo, Whitsons District Manager. “The geographic make-up of this environment can have you traveling almost an hour from one account to another without traffic. While Dwayne may be spread thin at times, it is evident that he has continuously risen to the occasion. I am extremely proud of Dwayne not only for this recognition, but for the way he was able to pivot when we were operationally having some very trying times early in the year. I have a tremendous amount of respect for his body of work this year and look forward to his continued growth.”
Congratulations, Dwayne Chung, for this award and for exemplifying the Whitsons Way!
