Freed-Hardeman University President David Shannon has announced the addition of Tony and Tamie Torres to the university’s staff.
The couple is moving from Middle Tennessee to Henderson to lead FHU in bringing dining services under the university umbrella beginning June 11, 2018, for the first time in many decades.
In discussing the new role, Tamie Torres said, “We are excited to begin connecting with and engaging students, as they become partners in their own campus dining program. Together we’ll create a home away from home culture that also provides new and exciting opportunities; we understand that meals on campus play a major role in their college experience.”
Tony Torres added, “We accepted this opportunity to serve after a great deal of research and prayer. We’re looking forward to building on the ways FHU serves Henderson and the surrounding area, and we are thrilled to be part of this great community.”
Shannon stated, “Having Tony and Tamie join our FHU family in Henderson is an incredible blessing! They are known for the strong relationships they build through their kind and professional treatment of everyone around them, their incredible work ethic and their delicious food! They are a perfect addition to our FHU staff and faculty, who serve students in ways that honor God, provide an inspiring college experience and prepare them for the future.”
The couple brings decades of hospitality and customer service experience to university dining. Tamie Torres, who will be dining services director and catering manager, has proven herself with diverse audiences — from operating her own catering business in Lemoore, California, to serving as banquet manager for the Hutton Hotel in Nashville.
In addition to decades of dining service work, Tony Torres has built his reputation for service through Tony’s Tours (the couple’s national and international tour company) and catering work for small groups and thousands of people. Their clients have ranged from at risk youth to senior citizens to company employees. He will be dining services general manager for FHU.
