The 7th annual Clinton County Schools Taste Testing was held at Clinton County High School on April 9, 2019, in conjunction with the CCHS Literacy Academic Showcase and the Gifted & Talented Art Show. Over 250 people came out to sample potential new menu items for next school year and to vote for their favorites. Thanks to Food Services Director Paulette Brinley and Food Services Secretary Alice Morrison, as well as the school cafeteria kitchen managers and cooks for the hard work they put into making this event possible. Several community booths were present to provide information about health, nutrition, and education to attendees. Big thanks to the Clinton County Alumni Band for providing awesome music!
