Poplarville Upper Elementary staff members had the opportunity to participate in a weight losS contest beginning in September. Staff members were encouraged to make healthy choices and come into the nurse’s office for weekly weigh-ins. The contest ran for 16 weeks and the winner was awarded on December 9, 2016. Evelyn Henry Rhodes, receptionist, won a cash prize for her hard work! She changed her lifestyle by making smart choices regarding diet and portion size. She also began an exercise program and increased her daily water intake. Evelyn lost over 11% of her body weight. We are so proud of her. CONGRATULATIONS, EVELYN!
