Chapel Hill Reveals New Design for Cafeteria Using FUTP60 Grant
Championed by former NFL player and now math and science teacher Michael Harris, Chapel Hill Middle is very involved with the FUTP60 program. This summer, the CHMS cafeteria was revamped using funds from a FUTP60 grant featuring a local artist's mural of Falcons players in action and FUTP60 themes. The school year began with a ribbon cutting ceremony held during the first lunch period. Local dignitaries attended and spoke about the school, the new cafeteria and the FUTP60 program's impact. The Dairy Alliance spoke on the importance for youth to eat a well-balanced diet of low-fat dairy, whole grain, fruits and veggies as well as the benefits of being involved with FUTP60. Blenders purchased using FUTP60 funds were used to make smoothie samples. Prepared by Chapel Hill Middle School FUTP60 student ambassadors, students sampled the smoothies using fruit juice and yogurt following the ribbon cutting.
