HISD helps City win health prize

San Antonio was recently announced as one of the four winners of the 2018 RWJF Culture of Health Prize awarded by the Robert Wood Foundation, and Harlandale ISD is honored to have played a role in this award.

The prize recognizes communities across the country for their unwavering efforts to ensure all residents have the opportunity to live healthier lives.

The Foundation named San Antonio one of the 10 finalists out of nearly 200 applicants in late February. The next step included a panel visiting San Antonio to interview several areas that would highlight the city as a worthy recipient of the prize.

One of those key visiting sites included Harlandale ISD. The district highlighted a variety of services offered to the community, including the Parent Center, attendance partnership with P16 and the School-Based Health Clinic.

 “The panel visited with several staff members here at the Sosa Parent Education Center on April 17, and they shared all the great things Harlandale provides to support our community,” HISD Director of Student Support Services and Special Programs Nadine Wolfe said. “Congratulations to the City of San Antonio, and we are proud that Harlandale ISD was one of five sites that the panel visited and the only school district.”

The official announcement was celebrated at a special press conference held at the Witte Museum on Sept. 18.

San Antonio will receive a $25,000 prize, join a network of Prize-winning communities, and have their inspiring accomplishments shared throughout the nation. The other three winning communities are Cicero, Illinois; Eatonville, Florida; and Klamath County, Oregon.
