LIMA – Lima Senior High School athletes are getting more than a sack of food when they get on their buses and travel to compete this year. They are getting their lunches with a side of Spartan pride.

Elementary and middle school art teachers had students decorate the lunch bags with Spartan heads, words of encouragement and more.

Lima Senior culinary teacher Misty Lee was there to talk to students about the food the athletes get.

This is the first year for the project, which helps build Spartan pride and gets the younger students thinking about high school and one day becoming LSH Spartan athletes. It also reinforces art concepts being taught in the classroom.

The first group of bags went to the football team last week when they traveled to Marion Harding. Many of the players kept their bags after eating.
