Mrs. Juli Simpson from the Meigs County Health Department visited the sophomore health classes to present a vaping program using the C.A.T.C.H My Breath curriculum and challenged the students to create an anti-vaping poster. The students who won are pictured with their prizes. The program was funded by the Maternal Child Health Program Grant. Mrs. Simpson did an excellent job educating our students on the effects of vaping and making healthy decisions!

Friday December 23rd, the Eastern v. Meigs Boys Basketball game will be sponsored by the “BraylynStrong Scholarship Foundation”. Our goal is to continue to help Spread Childhood Cancer Awareness! As well as to help raise money for the BraylynStrong Foundation, which will be handing out a $1,000 Scholarship to a student from each of the 3 county schools. Eastern, Meigs, and Southern. At the game we will have donation tables set up, a message that will be delivered between the JV and Varsity games about the foundation and how to help raise awareness. Plus we will be raffling off that nights game ball that will be signed by both varsity teams with the proceeds going to the Foundation. We encourage everyone to come out to support this great cause and to help spread awareness and also to support our local and area athletes. Tickets are $5 for entry unless you are an Eastern student or pass holder. Hope to see you there! - The Eastern Local Athletic Department
