Riverdale Academy Cafeteria Under New Management

By Molly Seales

This year the cafeteria at Riverdale Academy is under new management with Mrs. Kym Dabbs. Mrs. Kym is from a small town in Mississippi and graduated in 1995 from West Jones High School in Laurel, MS. She is married to her husband of 18 years, Bill Dabbs. She has four children: Sarah is 17 and is a senior at RA; Elaina is 16 and is also a senior in her homeschool program; Caleb is 14 and is a sophomore at RA; and Remington is 13 and is in 8th grade at RA. 

Mrs. Kym’s kids joined the RA family last year and she filled in as a substitute teacher. This year when the cafeteria job opened up, Mrs. Kym was a great fit for the job. I asked her what she liked about RA and the new lunch program. She said, “I love the small town, family atmosphere at Riverdale. I am trying to serve a good tasting lunch that has some healthy options like fruits and vegetables.” This year Riverdale is using an online program where parents and students can preorder their lunch for the day or the week.

When she isn’t working at RA, Mrs. Kym enjoys spending time with her family, watching football, and swimming, especially at the beach.  Welcome to RA Mrs. Kym!
