Many people ask, “Why did you select Morrilton Intermediate School for this pilot?” We chose this campus due to leadership both at the school and district level. The students on campus are healthier than the state's average rating for all schools. They were not selected due to BMI data collected by the state.
Karey Tapley, former MIS principal, agreed to partner with Champions For Health for the 2018-2019 school year, and current principal Sarah Stobaugh is just as excited as Karey is to implement this program! Our goal is to partner with more schools in Arkansas to implement this program once we develop a successful model.
