(Pictured above) Crawford Unlimited Leadership (CU Lead) students were treated to brunch by Wynford Elementary's The Leader in Me (TLIM) Lighthouse team recently. The children gave an impressive and inspiring presentation on how learning the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People (by Stephen Covey) is transforming their school, and their lives!
Local businesses helping transform county schools
The Crawford County Education and Economic Development Partnership is the lead partner for the Community Connectors Grant, which is designed to promote mentoring through collaborative partnerships with businesses, schools, non-profits, and faith-based organization. Each grant awardee is required to gain 25% of the state award in local match funds. Four local businesses and organizations went far beyond that requirement by donating $99,000, coming within $1,000 of a one-to-one match. The state awarded the local partnership $100,000. Most of these funds are earmarked for implementing The Leader in Me program in Crawford County schools.
