COLLETTE MANGOLD OF FAIRVIEW, TENNESSEE CHOSEN AS THE BETTER MADE SNACK FOODS MOTHER OF THE YEAR CONTEST WINNER
*The winning nomination essay was submitted by loving husband, Kevin Mangold
FAIRVIEW, TENNESSEE - Ms. Collette Mangold of Fairview, Tennessee, formerly of Michigan and an MSU graduate, has been chosen as Better Made Snack Foods' 2013 Mother of the Year. For being honored as Better Made's Mother of the Year
winner, Ms. Mangold will receive a sampler box of 15 different delicious Better Made Snack products. Her entry was sent in by her adoring husband Kevin.
"Collette will always hold the title of Mother of the Year title in our family, regardless if she wins the contest or not," wrote Kevin Mangold, Ed D. "She continues to be a wonderful mother of our two college-age boys, Ian, 21 and Kyle, 18, the Accounting Manager/Controller for one of the state's most progressive health insurance companies, and a splendid spouse and partner for almost a quarter of a century."
"For Collette, Education has always been one of her primary concerns, as she remains very active in making sure that both boys get the most out of their school experience. When Ian received the first-ever hockey scholarship awarded from a Tennessee college or university, (Bethel University, '10), it was Collette that made sure that the school's academics were compatible with our son's goals, and made sure that the Athletic Director knew of our priorities!"
"Whether our work took us to Nevada, Northern California, or most recently to Middle Tennessee, Collette has always called southeastern Michigan home. We come back to visit as often as our schedules allow, and none of those trips are complete without a visit to Gratiot Avenue to see the Better Made facility and stock-up on many of our favorite snacks.
