In our social media-fueled world, all too many of us struggle with issues of body image/insecurity, including eating disorders and disordered eating. Please consider joining the JHS XC/TF teams this coming Tuesday, March 1st @ 7 PM in the JHS Auditorium as we welcome nationally-recognized speaker/author/athlete/coach, Rachael Steil as she shares her journey of recovery from a debilitating eating disorder.
