    The Monett R-1 School District was recently awarded one of thirteen statewide Missouri Foundation for Health (MFH) “Schools as the Hub” grants that align to the “Healthy Schools, Healthy Communities” initiative. Initially, this grant will provide the school district with approximately $125,000 over the next year to specifically address the area of childhood obesity. In addition, this grant has the initial potential to be renewed for an additional four years. The MFH announced Monett R-1’s grant award at a press conference held at E.E. Camp Gymnasium on Friday, September 20.
