Como-Pickton Students Complete Walk and Talk Series

Four teams of faculty members, parents, and students at Como-Pickton School completed the “Walk & Talk” Series, under the direction of Extension Family & Community Health Agent, Johanna Hicks. The group met each week for 8 weeks for this spin-off of “Walk Across Texas” to learn about nutrition, the importance of physical activity, food safety, and other topics. The group logged a total of 3,751.42miles. The goal was to achieve 833 miles (the distance between Beaumont and El Paso), which this group easily met and exceeded. Pictured are some of the participants who participated. Meg Garrett, 2nd from left, logged the most miles with 372.5 miles as the overall high mileage participant. The student logging the most miles was Lucas Silva, second from right on front row, with 229.2 miles.
