Guest at the meeting was Len Griffith, Vermillion High School guidance counselor, who shared ideas on how to meet those objectives and how to access valuable resources.
The next meeting of Healthy Kids/Healthy Community is scheduled for 5:45 p.m. Monday, June 19, in the Sioux Valley campus board room.
