ESSEX, Vt. (WCAX) - Three Vermont middle schools are receiving funding aimed at improving fitness.

Essex Middle School, Milton Middle School, and Missisquoi Valley Union School will all receive a Don’t Quit Fitness Center. They were chosen as the state’s most outstanding schools for demonstrating leadership in getting and keeping their students fit.

Governor Phil Scott said it’s critical for kids to be active and embrace healthy lifestyles.

The program is run by The National Foundation for Governors’ Fitness Councils and is financed through public/private partnerships with private companies.

The ribbon cutting on the fitness centers will be in the fall.
