Mustang of the Month - December 2022
Chef Antonio leads an amazing team in the Corral where he connects with students and listens to their feedback for healthier and more diverse menus. Antonio’s nominator writes that he “embodies an authentic commitment to creating an inclusive space on campus that has truly become a vital hub for student activity because of his intentional effort to exemplify our diverse cultures through food and celebration.” The entire campus can agree that catering options provided by Chef and his team truly elevate the culinary experience. These culinary delights are a labor of love as they are mostly hand-made to bring the cost of quality food down for our students. Chef Antonio’s inclusive approach and demonstrated commitment to diversity make him an ideal candidate for the Mustang of the Month award and I am honored to recognize his efforts.
