The mayor is going to school. Highland Elementary is hosting its first semester Leadership Luncheon on Tuesday, January 26, and Mayor Ron Payne will be the special guest. Students who have demonstrated exceptional leadership and who have exhibited a strong understanding and application of the 7 Habits in school and at home were selected by their teachers to attend this special event. Attendance at HES Leadership Luncheons is a significant honor as there are only two such events each year, attended by one boy and one girl selected from each class. As part of his remarks, Mayor Payne will encourage Highland’s student leaders to put the 7 Habits of success to work in our community and will inspire students to give back through service learning projects. In addition to hearing remarks from Mayor Payne, the Leadership Luncheon will also provide an opportunity for students to share their leadership experiences with one another. Each student will receive a commemorative paperweight as part of this special event.
