Edward H. Hill C’02, Director of West Bolivar County Consolidated School District’s Child Nutrition Program, was recently appointed to serve on the State Food Distribution Advisory Council. The National School Lunch Program regulations contain a requirement for the State educational agency to oversee a State Food Distribution Advisory Council which meets periodically and provides recommendations on the commodity program. Council members are appointed for three-year staggered terms; in addition, members must represent a variety of schools and administrative levels. The Food Distribution Project Director is a member of the committee, but is a non-voting member. The council conducts a food-preference survey and gathers information; the council reports findings to the State Office of Child Nutrition. The state, in turn, informs USDA of the council’s recommendations. Activities of the council are vital links in the State information network. Recommendations by the council have often resulted in documented programs improvements. Hill will serve the following counties in Mississippi: Desoto, Marshall, Tunica, Tate, Coahoma, Quitman, Panola, Lafayette, Bolivar, Sunflower, Leflore, Tallahatchie, Yalobusha, Grenada and Carroll.
Edward earned his B.S. in Business Administration from Mississippi Valley State University (MVSU) in 2002. While attending MVSU, he served as the Pre-Alumni Club President for two consecutive terms. In addition, Mr. Hill is a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. and “proud” active member of the MVSU National Alumni Association, Inc., and the Bolivar County, MS Alumni Chapter.
