New Hampshire Lodging & Restaurant Association Honors PSU’s Chris Mongeon

November 12th, 2009 by Adam

The New Hampshire Lodging & Restaurant Association has honored Chris Mongeon, general manager of the Plymouth State’s Sodexo food service, with the 2009 Excellence in Education award.

Mongeon received the honor Nov. 2 at the 95th Stars of the Industry Awards Dinner at the Mount Washington Resort, an event that honors the Best of New Hampshire Hospitality. Mongeon, a food service veteran with more than 30 years experience, said he is grateful to PSU and the community for supporting Sodexo’s efforts.

“I know I am not alone in accomplishing what I do professionally or personally,” said Mongeon. “It’s about community and belonging. Central New Hampshire and Plymouth are my home. I am blessed to work for a company like Sodexo, at a place like Plymouth State University where both cultures blend together in a partnership that allows me to be active with the students and in the community. Although I am a contractor at the university, Plymouth State has never treated me that way and I have always felt a true sense of belonging.”
