1998 HEED Fund Grant Success Stories
|A newsletter entitled, Coachs Clipboard,
was developed for volunteer coaches in Lafayette and Henry Counties. Six issues were sent
to 175 volunteer coaches of youth sports. Topics included goal setting, stress, healthy
snacks, and self-esteem. A workshop entitled, Make Winning More Than The Score, was held
in Odessa that focused on achieving a healthy balance between competition and cooperation.
Another workshop was held with the theme of Winning Kids Through Sports. The keynote
speaker, Dr. Rick McGuire, Track and Field Coach at MU, focused on nurturing kids so they
can become successful, effective, fulfilled individuals through sports. Lynda Johnson,
Nutrition Specialist, coordinated the HEED Fund grant activities with support from Ben
Gallup, Youth Specialist, Susan Mills-Gray, Nutrition Specialist, and Lisa Wallace, Human
Development Specialist. Dr. McGuire, keynote speaker, is pictured with Sam Ratcliff and
