As an ongoing initiative, Spread the Health Appalachia is working cooperatively with the Knox School system, the Knox County Fiscal Court and the Knox County Health Department to implement activities and programs to help improve the health of Knox County families.

On Monday, Sept. 22, a groundbreaking ceremony will take place at DeWitt Elementary School for a new quarter-mile asphalt walking track. The track will be open to the public after school hours and on weekends. Knox County employees will begin the work Monday on the new track by laying the gravel for the project. Hinkle Contracting will finish the project later in the week by laying the asphalt.

18 Historic Jackets

 

Every April in Augusta, Georgia a highly coveted green jacket has been awarded to the winner of the Master’s Golf Tournament. This tradition has been carried out annually for the last 80 years. The city of Barbourville and Union College started another tradition last Wednesday night 9/17/14. Not one jacket, but eighteen lab coats were awarded to the first class to enroll in the college’s School of Nursing and Health Sciences pre-licensure program. Pre-licensure means the students have completed all prerequisites to enter the two-year nursing program. At the end of the two years, they will be Registered Nurses.
