Community Trail will improve learning for Nevada Middle School students | Nevada Daily Mail

Headlines are quick hits from media outlets from Missouri and around the world. Follow the headline link for the full story. The source of this headline says:

Karen Marquardt, from Healthy Nevada, told the Nevada Rotary Club Thursday that research she has been following shows there is a positive correlation between exercise and improved learning for students.

"A 20 minute walk improves brain activity, making it easier to learn and process information," Marquardt said.

This has been implemented for Nevada students in kindergarten through the fifth grade, who in 2014 walked 2,250 miles per week before school.

This program has not been implemented at the middle school because there is no good place for the students to walk.

MoBikeFed comment: The new, community-funded trail has recently opened in Nevada. It's a great model for other communities around Missouri to follow.
