HISD students present health service project to mayor

Two Harlandale ISD students want to empower their school and community to live a healthier life.

Carroll Bell Elementary fifth grade students, twins Johnnie and Jaden Miller, presented a health-inspired service project to the Mayor’s Fitness Council at City Hall on Nov. 11.

Mayor Ron Nirenberg listened to the students’ proposal attentively and gave them feedback on their project, which was developed a month ago.

“My students have been working very hard on their project and are partnering with the local YMCA to provide health, fitness and cooking classes to our school community,” Carroll Bell PE Coach Scott Albach said.

According to Albach, their proposal was well-received and supported by the panel. He is looking forward to the event taking place sometime in January.

The students hope the project will help promote nutrition and healthy living not only in their campus, but also in their community.

“I am very proud of my students. They have great ideas and aspirations and are building up the community they are a part of. We really hope the turnout of our community matches the enthusiasm these girls have brought to this project,” Albach concluded.

The mission of the Mayor’s Fitness Council Student Ambassador Program is to involve youth in improving the health of San Antonio. Student Ambassadors represent the Mayor’s Fitness Council by promoting and encouraging healthy living at their campus and in their communities.
