Mrs. Hamilton’s Family and Consumer Science Career Search class hosted Dawn Richards, SOMC Community Health Nurse, for a stress reduction session. Nurse Dawn engaged students about stress inducing actions and foods. Students learned stress was a part of life, yet management techniques can help us through difficult situations. She encouraged positive thinking, relaxation, and even exercise as coping measures.
Healthy Living classes would like to thank Josie Vanco, 2015 Ohio Beef Ambassador and pre-vet student at Colorado State University, for the Ohio Beef Council presentation on the beef industry throughout the state of Ohio.
The program entitled “Beefonomics” is designed to teach students where their beef comes from, how it is raised, how to prepare it, and how it fits into a healthy diet. Miss Vanco and student volunteers prepared a healthy beef recipe utilizing one of the 29 lean beef cuts. Everyone was able to sample the delicious beef sirloin with multi colored peppers and brown rice.
