Congratulations to Fridley Public Schools' January Employee of the Month, Elizabeth (Beth) Guarneri! Guarneri has served as the Kitchen Manager at Fridley Middle School for five years.

Since March 2020, the world of school nutrition has significantly changed due to the COVID-19 global pandemic. According to Director of Nutritional Services Renee Arbogast, Guarneri has played a key role in the success of students receiving meals throughout the pandemic.

“Beth is flexible, compassionate, resilient and quick on her feet,” said Arbogast. “She continues to shine as we’ve adapted to new ways of serving our students and community.”

“Beth always has a positive attitude and consistently collaborates with others to solve problems,” Arbogast added. “She does an excellent job in leading her team at Fridley Middle School, and continues to provide the best possible service for our students, whether they are learning in-person or online. We want to thank her for all her hard work and dedication to our department and students!”

Congratulations, Beth, for the well-deserved district Employee of the Month honor. Keep up the great work!
