First lady tours Jackson elementary school

First lady Michelle Obama toured the playground station and walking track at Pecan Park Elementary School today in Jackson with Gov. Haley Barbour and wife, Marsha, along with Wanda Quon, the principal of the school.

Obama is in Jackson as part of her Let’s Move! campaign promoting healthy eating and lifestyles for children.

Pecan Park students Alton Chambers and Reion Jamison were also with the group.
Obama toured the school’s physical fitness facilities for about 20 or 30 minutes, often asking the governor and his wife questions.
