Wellness Captains Go Above & Beyond



The latest winners of the Above & Beyond Award are the wellness captains, part of the Topeka Public Schools’ Wellness Program since 2010.  Each building has a person who has volunteered to be a wellness captain. Their job is to coordinate activities, communicate policies and changes and guide employees to a healthier lifestyle.  Marie Carter, who nominated the wellness captains for the award, said “Their willingness to lead, the selfless contributions they make in behalf of their co-workers and the wellness program and the daunting tasks they are prepared to do are endless and greatly appreciated.  It is without reservation that I nominate collectively every wellness captain who is currently serving or who has served in the past.”
