Smokies Day

Fourth-grade students, teachers and parents representing 35 Knox County elementary schools recently enjoyed the 24rd annual Tennessee Smokies Health and Safety Day at the Tennessee Smokies ballpark. The event focused on education that supports healthy decisions for drug-free lifestyles, along with the development of overall good health and character. It is presented by East Tennessee Children’s Hospital and Kohl’s Cares.

Students had the opportunity to meet Tennessee Smokies players, followed by a one-hour educational program that included an anti-drug message, information on bike safety, and a nutrition presentation. The crowd then enjoyed the Tennessee Smokies vs. Mobile BayBears baseball game!
