    Meet Kelsey Chrisman - JC Healthy Schools Coordinator

    Kelsey Chrisman is a native of the Honey Creek/Brazito area, outside of Jefferson City, MO. She attended Eugene High School, then went on to play softball at William Woods University. Kelsey holds a Bachelors degree in Exercise Science and Sports Management from WWU. 

    In 2020, Kelsey joined JC Schools as the district's first-ever JC Healthy Schools Coordinator. Three years before taking on the role, Kelsey worked with four of our elementary schools through the Healthy Schools, Healthy Communities grant. Our elementary schools collaborate with Kelsey to explore healthy fundraisers, celebrations, and how to create more physical activity to support learning. Kelsey has experience with programs and events such as National Walk to School Day, The Walking School Bus, Cooking Club, Fitness Club and the Girls on the Run after-school program. Thanks to Kelsey working with our elementary schools, we are building a healthier community and empowering our students to develop lifelong healthy habits.
