Fuel Up To Play 60 has provided a grant for the purchase of physical education equipment for Chilhowee Middle School. Faye Beach with the Southeast Dairy Association, Coordinated School Health Directors Corina Jones and Wilma Jean Pippenger, and Chilhowee Middle School Athletic Director Pam Hindman, were all instrumental in securing the grant.
Students provided a demonstration for school administrators, teachers and community leaders, highlighting the benefits of the new equipment, which generated 100% participation from the student body. Thirty adults also volunteered to serve as advisors for the new program.
The students and school administrators would like to thank everyone who has contributed to the Fuel Up To Play 60 program and the guests who attended the presentation: Faye Beach, Southeast Dairy Association; Polk County Sheriff’s Department members, Joe Price and Brian Epperson; Polk County Mayor Hoyt Firestone; Benton Mayor Jerry Stephens; Police Department members, Rocky King, David Bloom, Eric Gentry, Dustin Wilson, and Aaron Hardin; Bill Womac, Volunteer Electric Board Member; Natalie Cross and Candy Hatcher, First Bank of Tennessee; Mike Whitmire, First Volunteer Bank; Brenda Stone, IGA; James German, contributor; Rex Wilson, contributor; James Jones, Director of Schools; Joel Cox, Central Office; Jennifer Woods, Nutrition Director; Reverend Betsy Switzer, 1st District County Commissioner John Hoyt Pippenger; 2nd District County Commissioners Buster Bramlett and Mike Curbow; Lerry Jenkins, Polk County High School SRO; Regina Boyd, Benton Elementary School; Ken Dickens, contributor.
We appreciate the citizens of Polk County for providing continued support for the education of our children.

Chilhowee Middle School held an art contest in connection with the FuelUpToPlay60 Grant which was awarded to the school. Art Instructor Tracy Childs’ students participated in the contest. The students did a great job and artwork was on display in the school gymnasium. Twelve winners were selected and received awards for their work. The school would like to thank everyone involved in the project. Contest winners were: Cambaria Woody, Emily Pritchett, Tori Wooten, Sydney Hayes, Jake Darnell, Katherine Moats, Summer Clark, Kevin Dodd, Ashli Brown, Devin Smith, and Tyler Nelms.

Chilhowee Middle School’s Leadership Team for FuelUpToPlay60 has been working on the school’s Community Day Event. Participants received t-shirts and wristbands. Tem members are encouraging all students to eat healthier and make milk and dairy products a part of their meals. The taste test also challenges students to experiment with new foods. The new PE equipment purchased with the FuelUpToPlay60 grant has been an asset to the school’s athletic department. Team members are Bryce Bramlett, Jonathan Pippenger, Cara Cummings, Emily Pritchett, Nikki Davis, Anthony Epperson, Dawson Davis, and Skylar Hatcher representing the 8th grade. 7th grade members are Scott Patterson, Sadie McAbee, Nolan Morris, Drew Rogers, Ally Morrow, Travis Stewart, Keri Beth Fox, and Anna Davenport. Team members from the 6th grade are Robert Ross, Teagan Davis, Jenna Fritts, Kerigan Dickens, Campbell Brown, Kevin Dodd, Luke Burrows, Shelby Boyd, Brandon Breedlove, and Nate Waters.
