Congratulations to Ernesto Chavez of Price Middle School for being selected as a 2012 Atlanta Falcons First Down for Fitness MVP. Ernesto and ten other students out of over 52,000 in the program were selected from around the state of Georgia and Mexico based upon his conscious effort and commitment to eating healthy, staying active and demonstrating sportsmanship at Price Middle School.
Ernesto is an 8th grader who participates in football, soccer, and the IBM IGN.I.T.E. Technology Academy. When he started playing football, he knew that he would need to eat well to stay in shape. He runs with his brothers for exercise. Ernesto wants to one day play professional soccer in Barcelona, Spain.
Ms. Janice Johnson, art instructor and Atlanta Falcons fan, nominated Ernesto for this award. Congratulations Ernesto and cheer the Falcons on to victory!
