Community residents and students alike are excited about the new walking track installed on the grounds of Flat Lick Elementary School. As a Shared-Use initiative, the Knox County Public Schools and the Knox County Fiscal Court see the benefit of joining together to offer a safe environment for physical activity for students and community members.

The project was made possible by a $5,000 Community Transformation Grant sponsored by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and received by Microclinic International (MCI), a San Francisco based company who focused their efforts to improve health and reduce chronic disease in the Cumberland Valley region.
