Loyal E. Horton Dining Awards

In College foodservice the ultimate professional tribute is a NACUS (the National Association of College & University Food Services) Loyal E.Horton Dining Award.

Named for a NACUFS Founder, past president and highly regarded innovator, the Loyal E. Horton Dining Awards celebrate exemplary menu, presentation, innovation, special event planning, and new dining concept, and provide an avenue for sharing ideas and creative presentation in campus dining services.

USD has won the Gold Award for best retail concept in the Loyal E.Horton Dining Awards contest for its entry of Aromas.

Sustainability Hero Award

Greg Zackowski was recognized as a Sustainability Hero at the May 16th Sustainability Banquet for inspiring sustainability and "working to create change in our world." He donated his award money to "The Living Classroom", an experiential garden which will be utilized at USD's Manchester Family Child Development Center. Be on the lookout for Greg cycling through campus (with a burlap cape flying behind him) as he continues to promote sustainability at USD and beyond!
