HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

This is a news release from the University of Southern Mississippi

Coach Larry Calhoun, star of the “Move to Learn” exercise break videos, will visit The University of Southern Mississippi’s Center for Child Development (CCD) Monday, Oct. 5 at 6 p.m. to present a live example of the Move to Learn initiative. The CCD is located on the west side of the University’s Hattiesburg campus at 3400 Morningside Drive.

Calhoun will be accompanied by a team from The Bower Foundation and Mississippi Department of Education’s Healthy Schools, as he leads students in simple movement exercises that can be done in a small space. Developed by Mississippians for Mississippi children, these types of exercises incorporated as small fitness breaks during the school day have been shown to support students’ ability to focus and learn, while helping teachers establish a positive classroom environment.
