The Edward Waters College (EWC) Schell Sweet Community Resource Center recently hosted a celebration in honor of Ms. Bertha Adams 100th birthday.
Adams was among the first group of seniors to join the first fitness class of the Senior Wellness Program which began at the Schell Sweet CRC in 2010.
Bertha Adams is a “regular” active participant in one of five senior fitness classes held once a week as part of the center’s Senior Wellness Program. The hour long session uses low-impact aerobics and light weight-lifting to help keep its participants active. “Bertha Adams is still an independent, fully-functioning member of society, and I know this class has a lot to do with that,” said Senior Wellness Coordinator, Maria Edwards. The Schell-Sweet Community Resource Center also provides a Virtual Learning Program to senior citizens ages 60 and older.
