19 Cherokee schools make SHAPE Honor Roll

CHEROKEE COUNTY, Ga. -- Nineteen elementary, middle and high schools in Cherokee County have been named to Georgia's 2013 SHAPE Honor Roll.

The SHAPE (Student Health and Physical Education) program was created last year to recognize schools that work hard to combat childhood obesity. It challenges students and teachers to make lifestyle improvements in three key areas: nutrition, wellness and physical activity.

Schools can be honored at three levels: gold, silver and bronze. Last year, 16 Cherokee schools were honored.
