Milestones

  • GRANT COUNTY’S HEALTHY HEROES

    Name: Jamie Spalding, of Dry Ridge

    What motivated you to live a healthier lifestyle? Living a healthier lifestyle was a decision that I did not have to make. When I was coming out of elementary school my doctor told me I had one option and that was to take control of my weight. If I did not I would not have a chance to see the age of 50. With the help of both my parents, we took that first step.
