Rationale: 

1. Since 1992, Dogwood Elementary has partnered with the American Heart Association in their efforts to educate youth regarding heart disease and stroke by participating in Jump Rope for Heart.  Families and schools are critical links in providing the foundation for cardiovascular wellness in our country.  By holding this event at their school each year, they raise awareness about heart-healthy living and they help the American Heart Association fund lifesaving scientific research and critically needed education efforts. 

Last year, Mrs. Susan Pittman, Mrs. Angela Martin, and Mrs. Dana Guntharp helped Dogwood Elementary raise $27,550.38.  The amount raised not only set an all-time high for the school but also earned the school the status of being the #1 School in the State of Tennessee. On behalf of the American Heart Association, RaDonna Garnett would like to thank these three individuals for their commitment and dedication to the Jump Rope for Heart program.
