Putnam County grade-schoolers have moving experience at TTU

Welcoming more than 6,000 Putnam County school children and their families to the annual Festival of Movement held recently at Tennessee Tech University’s Hooper Eblen Center are, from left in the photo above, President Bob Bell; Darrell Garber, dean of the College of Education; and Pat Jordan, director of the Exercise Science, Physical Education and Wellness program at the university. In the photo below, Danielle Hayes, a first-grader at Capshaw Elementary, was only one of the many students in grades K-4, representing all Putnam County schools, who participated in the event by running, jumping, twirling ribbons and other activities meant to increase children’s interest in exercise.
