Crissy Garner


Cafeteria Manager


I have worked in cafeterias in Alabama and Tennessee since 2007. This is my fifth year as the Cafeteria Manager at Tanner. I love my school, my staff, and my students. 

I have earned my Level 4 Certification through the School Nutrition Association. My next goal is to earn my School Nutrition Specialist Credentials. I have been ServSafe Certified since 2016. I am very involved with the Alabama School Nutrition Association and served as their Chapter 1 President during the 2017-2018 school year.

I am currently enrolled at Motlow State Community College in Fayetteville, Tennessee. I plan to graduate with my Associate's degree in Business Administration in May 2021. I have not decided where I will attend college to work towards my Bachelor's degree.  

My husband, Tony and I live with our two kids in Giles County, Tennessee. My husband has worked for Marelli (formerly Calsonic Kansei) for 21 years as an Injection Engineer. Our son, Eathan, graduated Giles County High School in 2019 and currently works at O'Reillys. Our daughter, Lacy, is a junior at Giles County High School and works at Rick's BBQ.
