Fluvanna County has its own Captain Kirk, but her mission is more down-to-earth and has remained on the same course for nearly 40 years. The retired educator is working harder than ever to promote the importance of physical exercise and healthy eating habits – lifestyle choices that begin in early childhood.
Lake Monticello resident Regina Kirk was recently selected to serve as president-elect of the Virginia Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance (VAHPERD) at the organization’s annual state convention, held in Roanoke in November. The professional association of educators offers workshops, recognizes outstanding teachers, and encourages collaboration to create quality health curricula throughout Virginia.
