Faith Gravenmier Scholarship

Faith Gravenmier was the first Child Nutrition Director for West Virginia.  During her tenure, she was able to secure several important policies such as only unitized meals being served, breakfast mandate, and no soft drinks in schools. She was a very effective advocate for children and child nutrition. She believed education and training was critical for the different programs. Under her direction, computerizing the school meals program began. She was a recognized leader across the country and as a result, WV was often the test grounds for different USDA initiatives and new programs including the Summer Foods.  Faith also served as President of the WVSNA during the 1968-69 school year.

 In the late 90s, a fund was established to honor her work and legacy.  The funds would be used to further education and training for those involved in child nutrition. Cooks, directors, and friends of child nutrition contributed.
