Carl D. Perkins students help out at “Healthy Fun Fair”!

July 28th, 2014

 Carl D. Perkins Culinary, Facilities Maintenance and Security & Protective Services (SPS) students assisted the National Business College on Thursday July 24th, with their annual Summer Healthy Fun Fair event at the college. Perkins Facilities Maintenance did the Pre- event work with roping off parking spots and setting up tables and chairs for the event. Culinary students took charge of the grill, with grilling over 600 hot dogs for the attendees at the fair. While SPS students directed traffic and handled parking.

The event offers free medical services to families in Eastern Ky. The following free screening were offered for the event; vision, cholesterol, glucose and Blood Pressure. Weight management classes, Diabetic supplies and education, smoking cessation classes were also held at the event. These were just some of the many free services offered.

This is just one of many community events that the Carl D. Perkins students assist with throughout the year. Giving back through community service is a valuable opportunity for the students.
