The American Samoa College Research Foundation (ASCRF) Student Organization at the American Samoa Community College (ASCC) has announced the winners in this semester’s “Biggest Loser” competition. In recognition of Healthy Weight Awareness Month earlier this year, the ASCRF launched the “Biggest Loser” competition in late January to encourage ASCC students to become familiar with the many factors in achieving and maintaining a healthy body weight. 34 individuals entered the competition to see who could lose the most weight over the next two months, with the winners emerging as James Maae in the individual category, and Avea Lotoaso and Manu Thomas taking top honors in the couple category.
