Willard Central Named Leader in Me Lighthouse School

Willard Central Elementary Named Leader in Me Lighthouse School

Willard Central Elementary has been named a Leader in Me Lighthouse School by FranklinCovey Education! While there are several schools in the Leader in Me process throughout Missouri, only 33 of them have earned the designation of a Lighthouse School. Willard Central is the first school in Southwest Missouri to earn that recognition!

Sean Covey, President, FranklinCovey Education, said, “We are thrilled to recognize Willard Central Elementary as a Leader in Me Lighthouse School. Schools who achieve this Lighthouse Certification are great examples of a strong leadership model and process, and of what it means to be a Leader in Me school. This school has experienced transformational results by implementing the principles and practices related to Leader in Me. And, we are so pleased and honored to celebrate the success they are experiencing.”

The Willard Central family celebrated May 23rd with a student led assembly focused on how far they’ve come in their journey, followed by a victory march in the Willard Central neighborhood, and finished the celebration by releasing floating lanterns to spread their light. Many friends and family joined in the celebration and enjoyed an all school picnic.
