Hosted by: Starkville In Motion
Starkville In Motion has coordinated with the City of Starkville and the Starkville City Schools to organize a Walk to School Day with Starkville High School on Thursday, April 21. The purpose for these walks is to close out the current Safe Routes to Schools grant and to raise awareness to parents/guardians and children of safe routes for walking and bicycling to their respective school.
We currently don’t have a great number of people actively involved in our organization and we are in need of volunteers to help with these events and to ensure the safety of the students participating. The volunteer positions are as follows:
