A CHALLENGE TO GET HEALTHY – Westview High School students and faculty (from left, clockwise) Karina Romero, Dayjah Trice, Bill Fuqua, Michael Ashmore, Theresa Lloyd and Angie Rushing are taking the “Get Healthy” challenge at WHS. The program, which is the brainchild of school nurse, Beth Kempton, R.N., pits students against faculty members to measure body mass index and weight. Students will weigh each Monday and their BMI will be checked once a month. The school reports since the challenge began last week, the salads have been a top seller during lunch, ranging from 15 to 20 in the past to 40 to 50 salads sold each day. Cafeteria staff have noted their challenge is to keep a variety of fresh vegetables, fruits and a variety of fresh salads available for students and faculty. Any WHS student wishing to participate in the challenge needs to have a parent sign a permission slip and visit Kempton’s office. As of last week, 49 students and 32 staff members were participating and Kempton said it is never too late to sign up for the challenge. Kempton is also seeking donations as prize incentives for students. To make a donation, call 587-4805.
