Childhood obesity has been described as an epidemic in our country, and that's why lots of organizations have been launching efforts to get kids up off the couch and back into exercise. That is also why our sports director, Pete Christi, has been named this year's recipient of the prestigious Silver Apple Award, given by the Texas Classroom Teachers Association.
The TCTA is applauding Pete for his "I Beat Pete" challenges that have motivated hundreds of kids to strut their stuff and compete against Pete. Specifically, the award says - Pete's segments spotlight education from a physical fitness angle in a lively, entertaining way. Way to go Pete. You win.
