District Chef Todd Bull was named the Grossmont Union High School District’s Classified Employee of the Year, as classified employees are celebrated during Classified School Employee Week May 22-26.
With a career spanning more than 21 years with the GUHSD, Bull spent the last 10 years as the districts first District Chief, leading 10 kitchens across the district. Prior, Bull was a Culinary Arts teacher.
GUHSD Food and Nutritional Services Director Vince Simone said Bull “taught classes during the day and ran the restaurant class at night,” in a press release.
Simone said during the pandemic, “Bull went to every school to help them set up drive-through operations that kept the communities fed during the most stressful and difficult circumstances in our lifetime to date. He has taught staff in our district how to cook for students and how to cook
for themselves, always sharing generously of his time and expertise, but also his passion for food, nutrition and life-long health.”
“Mr. Bull is both widely respected and has a reputation as being extremely humble, helpful and a true servant-leader,” said GUHSD Superintendent Mary Beth Kastan. “Known for working at times, until 2 a.m. to organize a menu or logistics for a buffet, Mr. Bull’s work ethic is legendary.”
