On Thursday of last week, Seahawks cornerback Tre Flowers stopped by Tyee High School in SeaTac to present a $10,000 Hometown Grant to the school.

According to a press release from the Seahawks, the Seahawks Mascot, Blitz, and Sea Gal Kylie were also there to present the grant.

“The grant was given on behalf of the Washington Dairy Council in efforts to provide the school with the resources to create a portable breakfast cart. Its purpose is to provide an easy solution for students to receive grab-and-go meals after the beginning of the school day,” it said in the press release.

The Washington Dairy Council is a team of nutrition professionals funded by the Dairy farmers of Washington that promote lifelong health and enjoyment of food.

The school plans to use the grant to purchase new equipment for its physical education program as well, the release continued.

Flowers spoke in front the the students and staff at a Fuel Up To Play 60 assembly about how making healthy choices early on in life helped him become a professional athlete.

He also participated in a question and answer with the students.
