Mary Molt brings home the gold

Tuesday, May 8, 2012

Mary Molt went to collect silver and came home with gold. She received the Gold Plate award, the highest honor given by the International Foodservice Manufacturers Association, Monday at ceremonies in Chicago, for her contributions to food service operations.

Molt, assistant professor in the department of hospitality management and dietetics, was selected from nine Silver Plate winners, each representing a different segment of food service operations. She traveled to 58th annual Gold and Silver Plate Awards Celebration to receive that prestigious honor and was surprised to be awarded the gold. She is only the third College and University Silver Plate winner to be awarded the top honor in 58 years.

Molt is the author of "Food for Fifty.” She has worked in housing and dining services for 34 years and serves as adviser for Kappa Omicron Nu National Honor Society for Family and Consumer Sciences.
