KC Wolf promotes healthy eating habits
Lee’s Summit resident Dan Meers, also known as Kansas City Chiefs mascot KC Wolf, talked to members of the Lee’s Summit R-7 School District Elementary Nutrition Council during the group’s Jan. 30 meeting.
Meers discussed his role as a mascot as well as how important it is for him, the Chiefs players, students, and adults to eat right and exercise daily because those activities keep people healthy and strong. He added we have only one body , so we have to take care of it.
Meers also recommended getting enough sleep, following the MyPlate example for daily eating, and limiting sugars and fats.
The Nutrition Council includes student representatives from all 18 elementary schools in the Lee’s Summit district. Its members meet monthly to provide feedback about school meals and also serve as ambassadors for healthy eating habits in their schools.

Another award for Innovation Campus
The Missouri Innovation Campus was among 25 local construction and real-estate projects to earn a Capstone Award from the Kansas City Business Journal.
Winners were selected in nine categories, and the Missouri Innovation Campus was one of four projects honored in the community impact category.
The Missouri Innovation Campus houses the Lee’s Summit R-7 School District’s Summit Technology Academy and Missouri Innovation Campus programs, as well as graduate and undergraduate programs offered by the University of Central Missouri.
The R-7 district constructed and owns the building, which opened last fall. The university is paying its share of the construction cost — about 60 percent — through a lease agreement.
