WHAT IS STAND TALL? Stand Tall teams in each high school in Lyon are part of Healthy Communities Coalition. Each sponsors annual community 5K Walk/Run events to promote fitness and to raise funds for their Stand Tall scholarships. During the school year, these young leaders learn skills such as public speaking, and work with their schools and communities to prevent alcohol, tobacco, prescription and other drug use and to promote good nutrition, mental health and physical fitness. The teams also take on a number of projects every year to serve their communities, including coat, shoe and food drives. Stand Tall teams help raise funds for their teams by providing face painting and other services at community events.
Stand Tall teams’ energetic work to promote health and wellness among their school peers and in their communities is also part of a regional Health Hub. The Stand Tall teams add important youth perspective and input to the Health Services Hub, a network that includes health promotion, prevention and cost-effective service delivery. Many groups and individuals, working together strategically, are expanding access to dental, medical, vision and behavioral health care and wellness education in rural Lyon and Storey Counties.
