LAMAR COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - The Lamar County School District Nutrition Director has been named Director of the Year in the state.
Becke Bounds has been with the Lamar County School for more than 30 years. Under her direction her staff has been able to improve the health of the students by offering palatable and nutritious foods and providing education on eating a healthy diet.
"Our responsibility serving our students is to make sure that they have life-long, healthy goals. We want them to outlive us," said Bounds. "What you eat is what you are and a strong body leads to a strong mind and that leads to academic success."
Bounds said that she couldn't do her job without her hard working staff who take pride in making sure each child eats a healthy breakfast and lunch when they walk in the school doors.
