Mount View Elementary School is a big winner in the eyes of the Tennessee Titans and the NFL. The school was awarded a $10,000 grant and named an NFL Super School through the NFL Play 60 movement.
According to the school’s art teacher Wes Butler, who painted a football field and the Titans logo on the school’s front lawn, the entire school came together for this cause.
Students knew they won the award, but they were more than a little surprised to see T-Rac, two Titans cheerleaders, and fullback Ahmard Hall at the pep rally and check presentation. Hall talked to the students about staying active, eating healthy and perseverance. After the pep rally, a select group of students were invited to participate in the Ultimate Gym Experience with stations and activities provided by the NFL and led by Hall.
The NFL’s Play 60 movement has partnered with the National Dairy Council and the American Heart Association to allow schools the opportunity to expand their commitment to nutrition and physical education while enjoying the benefits of local NFL involvement.
