Some of the most under-appreciated workers at McClurg are the dish washers. Many students know the names of the cooks and interact with them every day, but don’t know the names of the dish washers and don’t talk with them.

Michelle Andrews is a dish washer at McClurg. Andrews had not been in the workforce for the last ten years in order to take care of her family and joined the McClurg family about one year ago. Although Andrews works in the back washing dishes, she also knows how to cook.
