On Wednesday, November 18, Billerica Memorial High School’s DECA and School Nutrition programs hosted Jermaine Wiggins, former NFL player and current partner with NFL Fuel Up to Play 60 to speak to the students about healthy living habits. Wiggins informed our students on how eating healthy and exercising is a huge part of growing up and how important it is. Prior to giving his speech, Wiggins introduced the healthy smoothies that the DECA students researched and Billerica Schools Nutrition Services provided. The smoothies consisted of a healthy vegetable smoothie, a berry blast and a protein smoothie as well. All three were loved by the participants and the event was a clear success with the large amount of student participation that attended.
