Student Wellness Ambassadors Leadership Academy

by talkupaps


On Saturday, March 16, 2013, students representing 14 Atlanta Public Schools attended the 4th Annual Student Wellness Ambassadors (SWA) Leadership Academy.  This event was held in conjunction with the Center Helping Obesity In Children End Successfully (C.H.O.I.C.E.S) Children’s Expo at the Adamsville Recreation Center. Focusing on the theme, “Fitness for the fun of it,” students participated in activities promoting healthy living by visiting vendor nutrition exhibits, racing in team relays, and dancing to the infamous “Let’s Move!” slide.

Featured speakers included Councilman C. T. Martin and Dr. Patricia Harris, Director of Fulton County Health Department, who shared the importance of developing healthy habits early on. Students from Mays and Therrell earned community service volunteer hours for assisting during the event. Students from Parkside, Coretta Scott King and Mays were featured as speakers on the program.

The APS Schools represented were:

Parkside, Garden Hills, Cont. Colony, Miles, Fickett, Cascade, Heritage, Hutchinson, Thomasville Heights, Scott, Peyton Forest, Young, Coretta Scott King, Bunche
