Poplarville Upper Elementary staff members had the opportunity to participate in a weight loss competition beginning in October 2017. Staff members were encouraged to make healthy choices and come into the nurse’s office for weekly weigh-ins. The contest ran for 12 weeks and the winner was awarded on December 20, 2017. Linda Olsen, food services member, won a cash prize of $150.00 for her hard work! She changed her lifestyle by making smart choices regarding diet and portion size. Linda lost 12% of her body weight. We are so proud of her.
