Bucyrus City Schools welcome new Food Services Manager

The Bucyrus City School District Board of Education approved the hiring of Charma Schifer as the new Food Services Manager and District Wellness Coordinator during the regular meeting June 28.

Charma is a 1995 Bucyrus graduate and earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in English from The Ohio State University in 2000. Mrs. Schifer and her family owned and operated The Oak’s Café in Bloomville.

“We are very excited to welcome Charma back to the Redmen family,” Bucyrus Superintendent Kevin Kimmel said. “She will do a fantastic job of managing our food services department and continuing the tradition of providing meals that are both nutritious and delicious to our students and staff.”

Mrs. Schifer has also worked for the Crawford County Job and Family Services Agency, Crawford County Farm Service Agency, was a general assignment reporter for the Bucyrus Telegraph-Forum and served as an adjunct professor at North Central State College.

“I personally enjoy meal planning for my family on a weekly to monthly basis, depending on our schedule,” Mrs. Schifer said. “I have lost 80 pounds through good nutrition and exercise, and I love encouraging others to practice good nutrition.”

Bucyrus graduate Jackson Hirschy received a commendation from the board for the many hours he spent volunteering to assist district IT Director David Jones with special projects and day-to-day operations. The board approved a lengthy list of supplemental contracts for extra-curricular activities for the 2018-2019 school year, and they also approved the parent-student handbooks for the Secondary School and Preschool Program for the 2018-2019 school year.

All other items on the agenda were approved. The board recessed to executive session with no additional action being taken.

The next regular meeting of the Bucyrus City School District Board of Education will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Lincoln Administrative Center board room Thursday, July 26.
