(HOUSE SPRINGS) The Northwest Valley Middle School is receiving a $29,000 grant to purchase new equipment for its fitness center. The grant request was submitted to Donors Choice by the school’s fitness instructor Jessica Young. She says she put the grant application online in October and the Kellogg’s “Mission Tiger” decided to fund the entire request. Young received the news from Donor’s Choice this past week. Young, who has been with Valley Middle School for the past six years says a variety of items will be purchased.
According to Young, the fitness center has equipment in need of replacement.
According to Young, it has become important to get children active and exercising again after experiencing a down time during the Covid epidemic.
