My 1st Quarter, Slice of LIFE

My 1st Quarter: Tatum Johnson

Take every opportunity you can. Join the clubs you never thought you liked. One time I sat in on the Nutrition Club with one of my teammates and even though I am not in any dietetics classes, I thought it was so fun. So, make sure to try every opportunity even if you don’t think it’s what you wanted. Just try it, it’s going to be okay.

Hulsey planned the nutrition fair for National Nutrition Month that was held at LIFE on March 5.
