Coordinated School Health recently sponsored an anti-tobacco event at Chilhowee Middle School in Polk County, to encourage students not to start smoking, or, if already using tobacco, to quit. Judges agreed the students all did an excellent job on their T-shirt designs. They were sent out of county to be judged. The winner, Alyx Dill, was presented a $100 gift card by Polk County Health Department Director Jeannie Bentley. Every student who entered the contest was given a T-shirt with the winning design on it. Present as prizes were awarded were CMS Principal Connie Dunn, Coordinated School Health Director Corina Jones, art teacher Tracy Childs, CSH assistant Wilma Jean Pippenger, Southeast Regional Health representative Joyce Clem and Polk County Health Council chair Donna Calhoun. From left are, Dunn, Pippenger and Child on the left side and Bentley on the right. Students (in no particular order) are Alyx Dill, Jauy Waters, Troy Black, Jazmine Schoelzel, Bruce Maynard, Jobac Chastain, Faith Fowler, Chris Shubert, Keagan England, A.J. Mealor, Alexa Spurling, Xander James, Desiree Schoelzer, Iva King, Jasmine Holder, Kaleigh Crowe, Timmy McCoig, Hunter M Ki, Leanne Hamilton, Gabricke, Alexis Pike and Asa Bates.
