Body Walk’s last trip before THANKSGIVING was to Lawrence County. This was a fun trip. There were many new faces, and some old Body Walk pro’s. The exhibit was set up in the Rod Paige Middle School gym. Third, fourth, and fifth graders, from three schools, plus home schooled students enjoyed going through the exhibit.
Each time Body Walk is set up and run, it is different because the volunteers are different. This trip, the wonderful woman who worked in the brain station was consistently entertaining. She popped out to greet each group with a huge smile on her face, and a hearty, “Welcome to the brain!”
Most of the rooms were staffed with Extension Agents. It was nice to work with men and women I have seen several times this year already. Having experienced presenters in the stations takes the Body Walk experience to a new level for the students. Thanks to Rocheryl, Patrick, Doyle, Marcus, and everyone else who stepped up once again to spend a weekday teaching children how to be ‘be smart from the inside out.” Also, thanks to Navlean Pittman who booked Body Walk for her county.
