Employee “Exercise Stars” model good fitness habits


The Rio Grande Campus logged the most exercise minutes.

ACC congratulates those participating in the inaugural “Become an ACC Exercise Star” program to promote physical activity.

More than 300 employees set a goal of exercising at least 400 or 900 minutes over a six-week period. Those who met their goal received a certificate and a drawstring bag. The three campuses accumulating the most minutes received a gift basket.

ACC president/CEO Dr. Richard Rhodes commended participants at small ceremony for the winning campuses.

“What we want is healthy, active, happy employees. You set the examples for students. If you’re happy, active, and healthy, it makes them want to do that,” he said. “I am inspired by your activity.”
