Crissy Garner


Cafeteria Manager


I have worked in cafeterias in Alabama and Tennessee since 2007. This is my sixth 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. 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 and their Vice President during the 2021-2022 school year.

I earned my A.S in Business Administration from Motlow State Community College in Fayetteville, Tennessee. I am currently enrolled at Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, TN to earn my B.S. in Leadership and Organization Administration with a Concentration in Hospitality Administration.  

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 May 2019 and currently works at O'Reillys. Our daughter, Lacy, is a Senior at Ardmore High School and works at Sonic.
