More than $500,000 awarded to Bradley County Schools

Posted: Updated:

BRADLEY COUNTY (WRCB)-- A local school system will receive a nice chunk of change from Washington D.C.

Monday, Channel 3 learned Bradley County Schools were awarded a $576,000 grant.

The Carol M. White Physical Education Grant will help the school system integrate physical activity and nutrition programs into the school day, and after school programs.

More than $35 million was awarded to 76 school systems across the country in 2011.

U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan says the grants give schools additional resources to help students become healthier and more active.

The Bradley County School System is the only one in Tennessee to receive the grant this year.
