Sycamore Students Attending Fuel Up to Play 60 Summit

A group of Sycamore Community Schools students are representing the state of Ohio at the national Fuel Up To Play Student Ambassador Summit.

Sycamore High School freshmen Kaylee Combs and Ariane Clerc along with seventh-grader Abbey Turner are attending the summit at Purdue University in Indiana July 25-28. Sycamore Child Nutrition and Wellness Director Jessica Johnson is chaperoning the group.

The Fuel Up to Play 60 Ambassador Summit brings together students from across the country, program advisors, and professional athletes from the National Football League. The summit provides leadership, communication, and program training to select students who drive the Fuel Up to Play 60 program in their respective schools, communities, and states.

Inspired and led by youth, Fuel Up to Play 60 is an in-school nutrition and physical activity program created by the National Dairy Council and the NFL, in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, to help encourage today's youth to lead healthier lives.
