Education Foundation expands Leader in Me

Related Stories

The Henderson County Education Foundation is partnering with Henderson County public schools to expand The Leader in Me program to more elementary schools.

Two Henderson County schools, Sugarloaf Elementary and Dana Elementary, currently incorporate “Leader in Me,” Franklin Covey’s process designed to transform and uplift an entire school. The nationally acclaimed program teaches 21st century leadership and life skills to students and creates a culture of empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader.

HCEF is hosting breakfast tours for the community to learn more about “Leader in Me” at Sugarloaf Elementary on two different dates: Friday, April 28 and Friday, May 19, from 8 to 9:30 a.m. Last year, Sugarloaf Elementary was named a Lighthouse School by the FranklinCovey Institute, the highest honor a “Leader in Me” school can achieve.

To RSVP for one of the breakfast tours or to learn more about “The Leader in Me” program, visit or contact HCEF Executive Director Summer Stipe at 828.697.5551 or
