Westview Welcomes First Lady Pamela Northam

First Lady of Virginia Pamela Northam kicked off the statewide celebration of Rev Your Bev Day by leading activities at Westview Early Childhood Education Center. “The earlier we are able to instill the habit of drinking water, the better we are setting up our youth for health and success,” Northam says.  

The Virginia Foundation for Healthy Youth (VFHY) has hosted Rev Your Bev Day since 2013 and has sponsored more than 1,500 local events to engage the public with the importance of making healthy beverage choices.

Mrs. Northam was accompanied by Petersburg City Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Marcus J. Newsome, Virginia’s 63rd District Delegate Lashrecse D. Aird, and Mrs. Marty Kilgore, Executive Director of the Virginia Foundation for Healthy Youth.
