ISHPEMING — It’s not often that students get to see how certain aspect can change their lives for the better. Local high–schoolers got the chance to really take in the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.



The Ishpeming High School National Honor Society hosted the first ever Hematite Health Fair. Students got to see how nutrition and exercise help live healthier lifestyles, as well as what they can do to turn things around and make a positive change.

“Basically we’re just trying to encourage more nutrition in our school lunches and in our community, and try and start more of a farmers market up here,” said Senior Caitlyn Graham.

“We wanted to focus on promoting healthy lifestyle changes and ways to improve everyday living,” said Senior Hart Holmgren.

Some booths showed the value of freshly–cut vegetables compared to imported produce, while others showed physical components to staying healthy.
