“In Anderson School District Four, we believe that our students’ health comes first. We have seen attendance, concentration, and overall academic performance improve when you provide healthy nutritional choices and opportunities for physical activity.” 


Role: Superintendent
School District: Anderson School District Four

Joanne’s greatest accomplishment as a school health leader:
Today, our students are the benefactors of a healthier learning environment that provides more physical education minutes, encourages movement during instruction, supports employees exercising at work during unencumbered times, requires healthy fund raisers, and monitors and motivates healthy choices.
