Leadership Made Health Awareness Fun for an Entire Week

February was the month for fun-filled activities and sales in the quad at lunch to celebrate Health Week 2013.  Leadership had stands selling T-shirts saying, “Be Cute and Eat Fruit.” Artfully decorated, a lot of these shirts were sold along with headbands, bracelets and banana grams. You could also find fun, healthy food. On Thursday, a dance called “Zumba” was performed. Friday was the last chance for students to buy cool merchandise. Friday was also the only day where popular Jamba Juice smoothies were sold. Health week was a great, inspiring effort to take care of our student body.

JSA Members Go to the Fall State Overnight Convention

During breakfast, lunch, and dinner, students could decide to walk to any restaurant they wanted to go to and were encouraged to make new friends from other JSA chapters. On Saturday night, our JSA chapter decided to have a chapter dinner at…
