Officials cut the ribbon on a new fitness center at the Salemwood School campus Wednesday morning, made possible through a $100,000 grant from the National Foundation for Governors' Fitness Councils. Students can now enjoy a variety of weights and exercise machines, at no local cost. Each of the centers are financed through a public/private sector partnership with companies like Coca-Cola. The program, first started in California, seeks to improve academic and physical excellence through fitness programs in schools. For more information, visit their website.
