SWOC Spotlight: Mt. Healthy Owls

Mt. Healthy was recently visited by Sam Hubbard as he announced his initiative “Hubbard’s Cupboards”. The Mt. Healthy School District will be the first to participate in this program with the initial ribbon cutting ceremony occurring at Mt. Healthy Jr/Sr High School.
 
The Mt. Healthy administration brought students into the gymnasium where Sam Hubbard talked football, his roots as a Cincinnati native, and what he hopes to accomplish with his program. A panel of Mt. Healthy students had the opportunity to ask questions that ranged from the atmosphere of a pregame NFL locker room to what he purchased with his first professional check. The event ended with students competing in a dance competition and the winner receiving a signed football.
 
The Owls are thankful for being selected for this project and the impact that will be made in the Mt. Healthy City School District. Sam made it official with a ribbon cutting ceremony and interviews with various media outlets in the Jr/Sr High School.
