Four Holbrook Junior High School students were given an experience of a lifetime Dec. 8 when the Arizona Cardinals took on the St. Louis Rams. Kobi Koerperich, Arizona’s state ambassador for Fuel Up to Play 60, and Holbrook Unified School District Ambassadors Ellie Smith, Griffin Lamb and Cole McDaniel led the Arizona Cardinals starters onto the field during the starting lineup introductions.
Kobi, Ellie, Cole and Griffin are ambassadors for the NFL Fuel Up to Play 60 and the Arizona Dairy Council’s “Are You In?” living healthy campaign. These four HJHS students are working to promote healthy eating, as well as, encouraging fellow students to put in 60 minutes of physical activity each day.
Park Elementary School, Hulet Elementary School and HJHS have all received grants from the Arizona Dairy Council and the National Football League’s Fuel Up to Play 60 Program to promote healthy lifestyles amongst the schools’ population. These grants help promote the school district’s health and wellness program called “Healthy Holbrook,” which promotes health and wellness amongst students and staff. Throughout the year students and faculty participate in health and wellness activities such as the 100-Mile Walking Club, Race Across America, Family Fun and Fitness Night, and school assemblies to promote healthy eating and exercise.
District officials offer thanks to the Arizona Dairy Council and the National Football League for presenting health and wellness opportunities for the students. Special thanks go to Stephanie Peters, Park and Hulet schools’ counselor and Fuel Up to Play 60 program advisor, for her contributions to the program.
