Milford eighth-grader on TV

MILFORD – Lily Ayotte, 13, is on a mission to encourage healthy eating and exercise.

The Milford Middle School eighth-grader won a grant last year to start a cooking program at the school, which helped prepare her for her debut on national television.

At a recent School Board meeting Superintendent Robert Suprenant noted that Lily appeared on the TV show, “The Chew” in March and also met with National Football League player Kendall Reyes in Nashua.

Lily is a New Hampshire student ambassador for “Fuel Up to Play 60,” a project of the NFL and the National Dairy Council.
