Thursday, August 3, 2017
Three Oregon schools have been selected by the Don’t Quit campaign to receive $100,000 fitness centers. Neil Armstrong Middle School in Forest Grove, Weston Middle School in Weston and Oaklea Middle School in Junction City will unveil state-of-the-art centers this fall.
“It’s no secret that when healthy eating and exercise are introduced during adolescence, young people continue to make those good decisions throughout their lives,” Gov. Kate Brown said in a news release Wednesday announcing the selections.
The schools get customized design, delivery and installation of strength and cardio equipment within the schools’ existing structures. The schools were chosen based on applications that included how they demonstrated leadership in student fitness.
