Motivating change

San Luis ObispoJanuary 25, 2013 

It was with great pride that I watched events unfold at Monday’s kickoff event at Georgia Brown Elementary School for their schoolwide nutrition and health education week.

From the UC Cal Fresh classroom nutrition education lessons to the healthy and delicious “MyPlate” school meal created by Chef Wangard, from the able oversight of Ellalina Emrich-Keller, principal, to the pied piper Cal Poly football players being trailed on the schoolyard by an energetic train of 40 or so animated first-graders, this event was a shining example of how to motivate positive change in our communities.

As UC Cal Fresh Nutrition Education Program manager for San Luis Obispo and Northern Santa Barbara Counties, I applaud the collaborative efforts of all community members and local agencies involved in the planning of Georgia Brown’s nutrition and health week. As well, I thank The Tribune for covering the event and bringing news about positive change to our communities.

The Tribune is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
