May is National Physical Fitness & Sports Month, something we take pretty seriously here at Learning ZoneXpress. To help celebrate and continue the conversation about the importance of physical activity, we thought it would be fun to share thoughts, stories and pictures from LZX team members about the topic. We'll be sharing these throughout the month of May.
First up is Becky. (Michelle's on deck and Linnea is in the hole)
Becky is our Marketing Database Manager and has been involved in sports her entire life.
What was your favorite sport/activity as a kid and why?
Tether Ball, because I am short and height didn't matter.
What is your favorite sport/activity as an adult and why?
Softball - a great summer activity. Volleyball - a perfect team sport. Golf - it doesn't hurt my body.
Tell us your favorite sports/physical activity memory.
Participating in the National Softball Tournament in Dallas, TX.
Did you play sports in High School? College? Tell us about it!
Women's sports were just being introduced when I was in High School, so it was all new. I played basketball (guard - I was very short), gymnastics, track and flag football.
What are your thoughts on the importance of physical activity and sports?
Teaches teamwork, helps prevent chronic diseases. Better physical and mental health improve sleep and help control obesity.
Our beloved Becky was recently recognized in our Owatonna People's Press for nearly 40 years served on the Owatonna Softball Association Board. "There is only one Becky Vick" the article states, and here at LZX we couldn't agree more. Read the entire article here.
Thank you Becky for your years of service to the community and to Learning Zone.
