Mr. Greg Waller has been working as a school nutrition assistant at Lakeview Primary School since 2015. He assists in many areas of the operations in the kitchen from preparing food to clean up in the dish room. Greg offers assistance to other co-workers and does so gladly. When he is not sure which area needs his help the most, he has been heard saying, “I’m not sure what to do, but if you show me, I will try”. This willingness to learn and assist others makes Greg a true asset to the kitchen staff at Lakeview Primary. In addition to his daily tasks in the kitchen, Greg also serves as a bus driver for the district and ensures that students are picked up and returned home from school safely. He not only feeds our students, but he makes sure that they are able to get to and from school each day. Mr. Waller, thanks for being a true example of excellence!
