“As a parent, supporting strong academic, social and health outcomes for students throughout Wake County is a priority for me. AHA’s work impacts schools and their communities in a way that sets students on a course for success.
Research has repeatedly shown that habits established in childhood influence us throughout our lives, and shaping students’ healthy lifestyle choices can make a tremendous difference in the trajectory of their successes.
Also, I firmly believe students’ healthy habits extend to their families and the community as a whole. AHA brings a win-win for the entire community, and that’s why I’m committed to the success of this collaborative.”
–Sarah Martin, Chair, AHA Board of Directors; Wake PTA Council
