In February, Amanda Zgabay received her medal as a result of completing her Marathon Kids Program for 2009-2010 at the closing ceremonies for Marthon Kids in Austin. She was especially excited to complete her marathon this year because this was the last year she could complete the marathon during her time at Lexington Elementary School. She completed the marathon every year while at LES and was the only kindergarten student to complete it when she was in Kindergarten in 2005.
Equally excited was Coach Marla Mitchell. Amanda was the first of her students who completed Marathon Kids all six years of their tenure while at LES. Coach Mitchell has worked hard to encourage kids to finish their marathon and has invoked running during their P.E. classes in order to help them complete the required 26 miles for the marathon.
