Life Education Center
Life Education Center Programs are provided using two mobile units and classroom education through the I-KAN Regional Office of Education in collaboration with the Pledge for Life Partnership. Life Skills programming reached over 12,000 students in K-8th grades in 2013-2014 at public and private schools in Kankakee and Iroquois counties.
Healthy lifestyle messages are brought to the community through annual Teacher Best Practice, Billboard, and Radio Public Service Announcement contests. This year’s "WISE HIGHS…Choices You Can Live With" billboard winners, Kate Schorch and Natalie Petrongelli were from Liberty Intermediate School. Watch for the anti-bullying billboards during the month of October.
Best Practice Awards will be presented to the following teachers as part of Red Ribbon Week Celebrations. Congratulations to: Jill Rodgers, Kris Pelletier, Karli Goodrich, Kim Eggemeyer, Kathie Both, Sue Williams, Sharon Brack, Liz Tschopp, Beth Sadler, and Eugene Wachholz.
