Coordinated School Health program receives Predators Foundation grant

Rutherford County Schools

The Coordinated School Health program has received a $3,000 grant from the Predators Foundation. 

Rutherford County School's Coordinated School Health (CSH) program connects health with education because student health directly influences academic achievement. The CSH model, developed by the Centers for Disease Control, addresses physical, mental, and social health of students and staff through family, community and school resources. CSH includes eight components that affect the health of a school population and its surrounding community. 

The Nashville Predators awarded $350,000 in checks to Middle Tennessee non-profit agencies on Friday, April 27, 2012, at the Bridgestone Arena.The awards make up the largest one-time grant allocation in team history. In the Predators 14 year history they have award a total of over $3 million in grants.
