Physical Education Teacher, Michael Kershner, and Health Careers Instructor, Jona Cartwright, B.S.N., R.N, plan the event each year.  “I take care of everything on the side of getting the gymnasium set up, scheduling everything, logistics, etc.,” said Kershner.

Cartwright and her students handle the content. “This is their final Health Careers project. It is a large part of their grade, so they have to be prepared as they are teaching elementary children about their health.  This is a great way for my high school students to put into practice what they have learned all year and they are great mentors for the elementary age students.”
