The Fayetteville School Board has received the Healthy School Board Award by the Arkansas Coordinated School Health Program. Carol Stone, coordinator of the district’s coordinated school health program, said the board was recently honored for its support of different physical and mental health issues in the district, including Farm to School; the school-based health center; funding for physical education activities at several schools; tobacco cessation programs for employees and students; healthy cooking classes; mental health care; and the physical fitness center for employees. The award was based on a 15-page questionnaire and two essays. “We brought home the gold,” Stone said. “I applaud you for being great, great people.”
