Grant to add walking track at Shannon school

TUPELO – Shannon Primary School students and staff will soon be able to say “Let’s Go Walking.”
A $14,900 grant from BlueCross BlueShield will be used to extend an existing wide sidewalk into a 1/4-mile loop at the school.
The walking track will be used as a part of physical education. Teachers and staff members have also expressed on interest in creating a walking club.
The school board formally approved the grant acceptance at its Tuesday meeting. The track will not be open for general community use because of liability issues.
