Centre schools to receive $1,000 grant
A $1,000 grant awarded to Centre schools in 2014 will be used to promote healthy eating for elementary school children. It was one of 163 Healthy Habits for Life grants given by the Blue Cross- Blue Shield of Kansas Foundation.
The application was submitted by Centre Girl Scouts as part of the Silver Award they received last year.
This year’s Cadettes, sixth-to- eighth-graders, will implement the project funded by the grant. They will present nutrition and healthy-eating information to elementary school students and provide healthy snacks for children as they go on field trips this spring.
Scout leader and school nurse Deb Casey will oversee the project.
