Matt Bosher's Celebrates with Milk Champions at Mirror Lake Elementary
Douglas County's Elementary and Middle schools participated in a "Be A Milk Champion" Challenge from March 27 - April 28. The competition tasked participating schools with increasing their breakfast and lunch participation. Mirror Lake Elementary came in first after achieving an 8% increase in breakfast participation, a 9% increase of milk sales at breakfast and 10% increase at lunch as compared to the previous year.
As a reward, the school received a visit from Atlanta Falcons kicker Matt Bosher, Freddie the Falcon, and Falcon Cheerleaders. During a special rally, students and teachers had a chance to ask Matt Bosher questions, compete in a milk chugging contest, a dance contest and agility activities. Other special guests included the USDA's Director of Special Nutrition Programs, Veronica Barnes and Georgia Department of Education Area Consultant, Mary Carol.
Bosher was also on hand earlier in the day to join The Dairy RD, Lanier Dabruzzi, in a live twitter chat discussing the importance of bone health and shared ways that he makes dairy a part of his everyday diet.
