Louisburg Middle School Receives Grant
Recognizing that school is where children spend most of their daily lives - making it an ideal place to encourage healthy habits - the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas Foundation is sending $148, 757.65 in Healthy Habits for Life grants to schools in 65 Kansas counties. The 154 separate grants will help school nurses, teachers and administrators fund programs or activities in 2018 aimed at helping thousands of children reduce their cardiovascular risk, increase their physical activity or learn healthy eating habits.
Shava Vohs, LMS Special Education Teacher, applied for the grant and received notification in
December that they would be receiving a $1,000 check.
LMS used the money to put in another Filtered Water Bottle Filling Station at the school.
