16 Cherokee schools make SHAPE Honor Roll

CANTON, Ga. -- Sixteen public schools in Cherokee County have been named to Governor Nathan Deal's first-ever SHAPE Honor Roll.

The SHAPE (Student Health and Physical Education) Honor Roll recognizes schools that make a commitment to fitness and nutrition for their students.

Only 5% of Georgia's public schools -- 112 elementary, middle and high schools -- made the cut. The awards are given at three levels: gold, silver and bronze.

Physical education teachers at the gold-winning schools will be honored during a pre-game ceremony at a future Atlanta Braves or Atlanta Falcons home game.

Cherokee County's SHAPE Honor Roll schools are:

Holly Springs ES STEM Academy
Mill Creek MS
River Ridge HS

Carmel ES
Free Home ES
Freedom MS
Hickory Flat ES
Indian Knoll ES
Johnston ES
Woodstock MS

Booth MS
Cherokee HS
