A longtime nutritionist is moving up the ranks in the Newport-Mesa Unified School District.
Dale Ellis, who has worked as a district nutritionist for the past 11 years, was recently selected as the new director of Nutrition Services. Ellis was officially appointed earlier this month by the N-MUSD Board of Education. She will replace Richard Greene, who announced his retirement in October.
“Dale has demonstrated outstanding leadership at N-MUSD," Greene said. "She is very well respected by her subordinates and all members of the district staff with whom she works."
Ellis has over 30 years of experience working in a variety of food service operations, including 22 years supervising and managing school nutrition programs in California.
Dale will begin her new position on Feb. 4.
