The Utah school cafeteria worker at the center of the lunch fiasco in January is speaking publicly for the first time. The woman who calls herself “Miss Shirley” because of threats she says were made against her tells the “Tribune” she’s being punished for doing what her bosses expected of her. The woman created a firestorm when she took away school lunches from dozens of students at Uintah Elementary School because their accounts were delinquent. Said “Miss Shirley” quote, “I had no choice…I was just sickened by it.”
