0521 program with Cam Newton (85).JPG

Some lucky Burke County Public Schools students got a visit from Cam Newton, quarterback for the Carolina Panthers, Friday. Newton stopped by to celebrate with the 940 fourth graders across Burke County who completed the "5-2-1-0" health and nutrition program implemented by Carolinas Healthcare System Blue Ridge, designed to teach children how to make healthy lifestyle choices.
