Preparing a Thanksgiving meal for 400 people didn’t phase Maria Diaz.
“It really made me happy to be a part of doing this,” Diaz said.
The lead cafeteria worker at Sem Yeto High School undersells her importance in the quarter-century tradition that takes place at the school a week before Thanksgiving, said biology teacher Wes Lai. Diaz is more than a part, he said. Without her help, the meal for students and staff wouldn’t work, Lai said.
