Three local schools make list of ‘America’s Healthiest Schools’
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) – Ten North Carolina schools made the 2016 list of America’s Healthiest Schools and three of them are in our area.
On Thursday, Lincoln Elementary School in Brunswick County and Roland-Grise Middle School and Mosley Performance Learning Center in New Hanover County will be honored at a summit in Charlotte.
The 2016 list of America’s Healthiest Schools, published by the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, identifies 328 of the nation’s healthiest schools based on a criteria ranging from availability of nutritious foods to access to quality physical education opportunities, as part of the Alliance’s Healthy Schools Program.
The summit will spotlight how each of these schools is serving as a best-in-class example of the nationwide movement to create a culture of health at school. The summit will also recognize the 20 South Carolina Schools that made the list.
At the North & South Carolina Healthy Schools Leaders Summit, schools will receive the Alliance’s National Healthy Schools Award at the Bronze, Silver or Gold level.
