2018 Governor & Cheri Daniels School Health Award Winner:  Zachary B. Kelley

Zach Kelley has been a teacher at White Lick Elementary, part of the Brownsburg Community School Corporation, for the past 15 years.  He has devoted the past 13 years to developing an elementary Kinesiology program that focuses on improving students’ quality of life. All the innovative activities incorporate appropriate developmental movement patterns and skills to challenge students to live active lifestyles and develop outstanding character through cooperative and problem-solving elements while exposing students to an infinite amount of exercise activity.  Students are challenged to stay active throughout the day in classrooms, extracurricular activity and at home—involving their entire family. 

In addition to his teaching duties, Zach has mentored thousands of students with his Juggling Masters extracurricular program, created to provide additional exercise opportunity for all students.  Nearly 160 students from grades 3 to 5 come to school early to learn to juggle various pieces of juggling equipment.  Over 2,000 students have participated in the Juggling Masters program in its 13-year span.
Zach is actively involved in his community through a teen mentoring program through his church, co-chairing White Lick’s Relay for Life committee, and participating in numerous events for the Susan G. Komen’s Race for the Cure. 

Zach’s philosophy of teaching is to be an outstanding role model for students, staff and his community.  He approaches each day with one simple thought…”it’s not about me.  It’s about the students and the community I serve.  I choose to inspire others by serving others. ”
