SHAPING the Future: Our Cause, 50 Million Strong. National Association of Kinesiology in Higher Education 50th Amy Morris Homans Commemorative Lecture 2016
Lambdin, Dolly
Quest, v68 n2 p135-147 2016
Amy Morris Homans was an amazing leader in the early development of physical education. She believed that every individual must be educated academically and physically. Earlier this year, SHAPE America committed to making her vision a reality with the goal of empowering ALL students with the skills, knowledge, habits, and determination to make meaningful physical activity and healthy choices a regular part of their lives. This is called "50 Million Strong by 2029." Fifty million is the number of school-aged youth nationwide, and 2029 is the year this year's preschoolers will graduate from high school. To be successful will take everyone working together, but people are ready and the country's future depends on success. Are you on board? This presentation will explain the 50 Million Strong commitment, showcase programs moving the nation in this direction, and celebrate the physical and health education teachers who are key to this movement.
