Students at Roberto Clemente Middle School in Hunting Park try out equipment in their new state-of-the-art fitness center. In May, the school was named a “National Champion” for its efforts in encouraging physical fitness innovation and healthy living standards among their students. Jake Steinfeld, chairman of the National Foundation for Governors’ Fitness Councils, visited the school in September to help students and staff celebrate with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and test drive of their new $100,000 Live Positively Center.
