Hurricane Middle School seventh grader Avery Ferguson has been selected as a State Representative for FUEL UP TO PLAY 60.  She and Program Advisor Andrea Cunningham will attend the Student Ambassador Summit in Washington, D.C., this summer.  
Fuel Up to Play 60 is a program designed to support wellness and combat obesity by getting students to be active and eat healthy foods. It is co-sponsored by the National Dairy Association and the National Football League.
Studies show that students who are physically fit are more apt to succeed academically. In addition, participating in a school-wide program increases the likelihood that students will make good choices as they take fun challenges to compete for prizes.
For their successful initiatives to involve the community, engage the students, and promote healthy habits, Mrs. Cunningham and her students are proud to have been named a Touchdown School for the Fuel Up to Play 60 program. 
Congratulations to Hurricane Middle Student Ambassador Avery Ferguson, Program Advisor Andrea Cunningham, and all of the students at Hurricane Middle School who are making healthy living a priority.
