Ribbon Cutting Held at Elementary Schools for New Playground Equipment

Ribbon cutting ceremonies were held recently at Lockport Upper Elementary and South Larose Elementary for new playground equipment sponsored by Thibodaux Regional Health System. Valentine Chemicals, located in Lockport, partnered with Thibodaux Regional in sponsoring the equipment for these two schools.

Thibodaux Regional has taken a leadership role in addressing childhood obesity. This playground equipment project is a continuation of Thibodaux Regional’s ongoing initiative to improve the health and wellness of the youth in Lafourche and surrounding parishes.

“We strongly believe that if children are provided with education focused on healthy lifestyle choices and an opportunity to increase their physical activity, improvements can be made to their overall health,” said Greg Stock, Thibodaux Regional CEO. “We appreciate the opportunity to work with the School District and other community partners to further the hospital’s efforts in providing our youth with the tools they need to make a positive impact on their health and wellness.”
