MSU on the Move Health Heroes Michelle Gerhart and Annette Woods receive certificates from the kinesiology department.

STARKVILLE, Miss.—Two current and one former Mississippi State staff members are being recognized for achievements at the university to encourage healthy lifestyles through regular exercise and healthy eating habits.

Michelle Gerhart, Janice McReynolds and Annette Woods recently received 2014-15 Health Hero awards from the MSU on the Move program for their hard work and dedication to overall health improvement on campus.

Gerhart is business manager in the athletic department, while Woods is a senior extension associate in the agricultural communications department. McReyolds retired in June as an administrative assistant in the forestry department. All are MSU alumna.

Supported by the Jackson-based Blue Cross Blue Shield of Mississippi Foundation, MSU on the Move involves a series of yearlong activities designed to give participants the skills to modify lifestyle habits and improve overall health.

In 2014, a second-year foundation grant supported a free comprehensive health and fitness program for the MSU community and beyond. In addition to measuring and monitoring participants’ progress as part of a pre- and post-program assessment, the $250,000 award enabled the College of Education’s kinesiology department to establish the Health Fitness and Wellness campaign, an extension of the existing MSU on the Move program.

“These standout participants are exemplary of the meaningful impact we hope to achieve with MSU on the Move,” said Megan Holmes, assistant professor of kinesiology.
