Kirby and Monticello High School team up to build healthy habits among students.

Kic(ing oƛ in late spring ǗǕǗǖǾ guest spea(ers nna CrawfordǾ ordan arney and Sara ades presented at onticello High School, with topics including good nutrition, physical activity, stress reduction and living a healthy lifestyle. Our very own pharmacist, Dan Burkybile, also presented to students this past fall. This initiative has proven to resonate with students, and the high school plans to form a health club at the start of school next fall. Kirby is thankful for this partnership with Monticello High School and looks forward to providing health education to students for years to come.
