Willard Central named a Leader in Me Lighthouse School

Willard Central Leader in Me Lighthouse School


What is Lighthouse Status?

Three years ago, Willard Central began the Leader in Me journey. Our goal is to provide students with leadership and life skills by empowering them to pursue their talents and set goals to achieve  their dreams.

This year, our school applied to be a Leader in Me Lighthouse School.  We provided an evidence binder that highlighted leadership among our students, parents, and staff.  We were able to brag about all the great things happening in our building. Our binder  and our school were reviewed by a team from Franklin-Covey, creator of the Leader in Me.

We are happy to announce that we have been named a Leader in Me Lighthouse School. We are 1 of 388 Lighthouse Schools in the WORLD, and 1 of 33 in Missouri! This recognition is a milestone in our Leader in Me journey. It represents growth in our students and teachers, where we have come from, and where we are going in the future. Thank you for all of your support in our journey!
