Northwest ISD will celebrate its non-stop journey to fight heart disease and promote healthy living on Friday, Feb. 24, with the help of a student's design talents.

On Feb. 24, the district will promote heart disease awareness by wearing T-shirts designed by Beck Elementary fifth-grader Reagan Dee, a student in Ashley Foland's art class. Reagan won a districtwide contest for elementary students to create a design promoting heart disease awareness; she will be recognized at a coming school board meeting and receive a T-shirt of her own.

District staff and students may purchase T-shirts designed by Reagan for $15 to wear in support of fighting heart disease. Proceeds from the sale will benefit the American Heart Association. All orders must be completed by 5 p.m. Feb. 15. Shirts will be delivered to each school's campus health coordinator for distribution from Feb. 20 to Feb. 23.

Reagan said she hopes her design will benefit the American Heart Association in providing care for those dealing with heart-related issues.

“I’ll be proud to see people wearing my shirt contributing to such a great cause,” she said. “I’m really happy to know I can help somebody with my design.”
