Wellness All Stars

Independent Health is looking to recognize two high school seniors who have demonstrated leadership by encouraging healthier living within our community.

Efforts from previous Wellness All-Star recipients include:

  • Establishing a community garden to produce food for local pantries.
  • Organizing healthy living community workshops focused on fitness and nutrition.
  • Creating a public education campaign about the importance of eating healthy.

Two Wellness All-Stars will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship, a plaque recognizing their achievements and a feature in a special edition of Business First on June 12, 2020.
