Lillie Burney Celebrated "Walk to School" Day

From WDAM -- Students at Hattiesburg's six elementary schools were encouraged to enjoy the nice weather Wednesday morning and take a walk to class as part of International Walk to School Day.

The event focuses on the health benefits of walking to school on a regular basis. 

At Lillie Burney Elementary School, Mayor Johnny Dupree, police officers and firefighters greeted children as they made their way to class. They were given pencils, decals and other items.

"We had a 25 percent increase of students walking to school today," said Derricka B. Thomas, principal of Lillie Burney Elementary School. "It was a great feeling to have all the community people come out and celebrate this event with us," she said.

"Last year, Mississippi had the most participants, as far as Walk to School in the nation and I think that says a lot for us," said Mayor Dupree. "We are actually moving towards a healthier community and that's what it's all about," he said.

This was the second year Hattiesburg Schools have participated.
