Sixteen schools have been named to the inaugural Governor’s Student Health and Physical Education (SHAPE) Honor Roll. The honor roll recognizes "their commitment to the health and well-being of Georgia’s students through fitness and nutrition," district spokeswoman Barbara Jacoby said.
Only 5 percent of Georgia’s 2,291 public schools were named to the honor roll. While 39 schools each were named gold and bronze medalists, 34 schools were named silver medalists.
