Leading together to make Kershaw the healthiest county.

"The most impactful thing I’ve learned (since becoming a LiveWell Kershaw Coalition member) would be the fact that students really just want to have a voice. They want to have a say in what happens in their school, in what happens in their community, and if you give them the opportunity to give feedback, usually they can figure out the answer.

Hi, my name is Seth Long and I’m from Camden Military Academy. I am an intern for the Kershaw Coalition. My goal is to establish a club led by me in my school where kids can come together to bond and feel like they can open up with their peers. I want them to come and enjoy the club to take some stress off of their shoulders and help them improve both mentally and physically. I want to establish this club at the start of this school year.

 

Hi! My name is Destiny Harris. I’m a Senior at Lugoff-Elgin High School. I love reading and swimming and I spend most of my free time writing poetry. I joined LiveWell Kershaw Coalition to engage and get the experience in the health field. I would love to take the information I gain from this internship and apply it to Lugoff-Elgin and my personal life. I would like to apply for a grant for fresh food. It would also be great to get breaks and a space for students to be able to relax and ease up students stress. One of my many dreams is to have an greenhouse ran by students and staff of LE for our own school and possibly the community.

 

My name is Deniah Arthur and I love physical activities such as sports and being outside venturing out. I am currently a junior at Camden High School and I applied to this program to learn more about the aspects of health for myself and for the students within my school. I would like to incorporate a mental health program within my school to help deal with stress and their emotions. This picture relates to a team building exercise my team and I did with a maze, which taught us to accept help and not be afraid to ask for it.

 

Hey! I am Izabella Baipho a Junior at North Central High. Now I am a Health Ambassador for the school. I really hope to improve health conditions in my school. This summer I want to learn skills to help me and my fellow students implement a student-led wellness organization at my school. I want to add brain breaks into the school day at North Central to improve both health and academics.

 

 

 

 

My name is Mary Reames and I am the student ambassador coordinator this summer. Currently, I am a student at Coker College majoring in Physical Education and Sport Studies with a concentration on Exercise Science. I am so excited about sharing all my knowledge in hopes of bettering Kershaw county. In addition to this, I believe we never stop learning and growing. Kershaw County is my home and I hope to learn more about the health issues that need to be addressed here. I love unicorns, cycling, all things glitter, smoothies, and of course—- health and wellness!!! Here’s to this summer!
