COLUMBUS, Miss. – Eric Dawson of Columbus has been hired by Sodexo to serve as general manager of Dining Services at Mississippi University for Women.
Dawson served as general manager for Sweet Peppers for 11 years. “I started at Peppers as a dishwasher and worked my way up,” he said.
As general manager of MUW Dining Services, some of Dawson’s responsibilities will include operation of the dining hall, the new on-campus Subway and a Simply To-Go spot.
Dawson is very excited about renovations to the dining hall and the new Subway, which is expected to open in August.
“The Subway will offer healthy, on-trend dining choices for the students and should be something that the staff is looking forward to also,” he said. “I am honored to get the opportunity to work with students, staff and faculty of The W.”
Dawson and his wife, Evans Whitaker Dawson ’03, have a daughter Ellie, 6, and a son Arthur, 3. They are active members of St Paul's Episcopal Church in Columbus.
