It was an honor to once again emcee the Healthy School Environment Awards with my dear friend and colleague and Michigan’s Surgeon General, Dr. Kimberly-Dawn Wisdom. Dr. Wisdom recognized 77 schools with a third of those schools taking first place. These schools made incredible changes to make their schools a healthier place for students to learn. You can read their success stories by going to www.mihealthtools.org and select “Healthy Schools, Healthy Students.”
Dr. Wisdom is also leading the way with her Generation With Promise schools, many of whom were receipients of the Healthy School Environment Awards.
It was a fun day to celebrate the efforts of schools and families on behalf of the health of children.
Here I am pictued with Paul Yettaw, Food Service Director at Lakeview School District near Battle Creek, Michigan, and Dr. Wisdom.
Here I am pictured with Barbara Blum and Deb Grischke. These are two high energy woman giving their all to help the Generation With Promise schools to reach their goal of healthy eating and increased phsyical activity for all students.
