Falcons, dairy group give wellness grant to Gwinnett County school


The Atlanta Falcons and the Southeast United Dairy Association are scheduled Tuesday to give a $10,000 wellness grant to Gwinnett County’s Sweetwater Middle School.

Developed by the National Football League and Fuel Up to Play 60 in 2014, the initiative provides grants to support physical activity and nutrition programs in school districts in all 32 NFL markets.

“Being selected for such an honor validates the hard work, the drive, and the commitment that we witness on a daily basis,” said principal Jay Nebel.

Falcons punter Matt Bosher is scheduled to conduct football drills.

You can find test scores, graduation rates and other critical information about your school at the new Ultimate Atlanta School guide.
