January 2022 Employee of the Month

Congratulations to our Employee of the Month for January...Thomas Dilyard! Tom is one of our Cooks and has worked at WCCC for 5 years. He likes to add a personal touch to his food; adding all the butter!

Tom has just a few pets: a dog named Snoopy, a chicken named Lucky and 9 or 10 cats.  His son's loving call him a cat farmer.  He has three sons, Joshua, Jacob and Zane.  Tom's favorite food is pizza and he seems to enjoy cheese on everything.  Outside of work you can find Tom working in his many gardens.  Which win and have won him many blue ribbons at the Wayne County Fair.  At work we like to call him Farmer Tom.

Fun fact:  Tom was a certified welder in the oilfield, has milked LOTS of cows and is currently a cat farmer :)

His favorite WCCC memory: "During the pandemic when the National Guard was here, it was just Nikki (the Director of Dining Services) and I putting away stock.  Nikki dropped a box of styrofoam plates on me.  I think that's how she shows love to the staff!"

Thank you, Tom, for all that you do! YOU make a difference each day!
