BROWNWOOD – March 24, 2017 – Howard Payne University recently held its fourth-annual Spring into Health Fair which included health screenings, demonstrations, exhibits, games and a variety of giveaways for HPU students, faculty and staff.
Among the new events this year was a relay on campus featuring HPU representatives Drs. Bill and Diana Ellis, HPU president and first lady; Dr. Kylah Clark-Goff, dean of the School of Education; Braxton Harris, head football coach; Hunter Sims, athletic director; and Dr. W. Mark Tew, provost and chief academic officer.
Following the race, the Honorable Stephen Haynes, Brownwood mayor, and Draco Miller, mayor pro tem, addressed the crowd about the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
The event was organized by Teresa Cavitt, adjunct instructor in HPU’s School of Education and student in the university’s Master of Education in Sport and Wellness Leadership degree program.
“The health fair was a collaborative effort by so many campus leaders also known as ‘wellness champions,’” she said. “It wouldn’t have been the success that it was without their efforts.”
