LHS Health Fair
Posted Tuesday, March 19, 2013
“It was a great success, and the students thoroughly enjoyed themselves,” Megan Tegtmeier, Loveland High School (LHS) Student Council president, summed up.
Tegtmeier should know, for the second year consecutively she organized the LHS Health Fair – this year with the assistance of the Student Council. The group organized the participation of 20 presenters from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, March 6, in the lobby area outside the LHS auditorium.
“The first health fair last year served as my Girl Scout Gold Award project which I spent 80 hours working on, and I recently received my Girl Scout Gold Award on Sunday, March 10,” explained Tegtmeier. “Paige Smith was my assistant this year, and I have passed the task to her; she is prepared to continue the fair for years to come.”
Tegtmeier said the purpose was to use a creative format to educate students on how to lead healthier lives.
“It was a chance for the students to visit during their lunch period and become educated on a wide variety of various health topics,” said Tegtmeier. “The Health Fair was a very important event for Student Council to host because it could provide life-saving information for a great deal of students and could have a positive influence on their choices.”
