Glasgow students learn about leadership

GLASGOW — Community members and North Jackson Elementary students alike learned what it means to be a leader at Friday’s Leadership Day.

More than 50 educators from Kentucky and outside the state were planned to be a part of NJE’s Leader in Me programs.

“Leadership Day is a special opportunity for our school to open its doors to the community to show off the great things that are happening,” said Tammy H. Hensley, early childhood education teacher and public relations for NJE, in a press release.

During the day, students and staff made presentations based on the habits in Stephen Covey’s book “7 Habits of Highly Effective People”: Be proactive, begin with the end in mind, put first things first, think win-win, seek first to understand then to be understood, synergize and “sharpen the saw.”

The students also heard from local business owners and managers, like John Botts of Big Brothers, Big Sisters and Laura Belcher of T.J. Samson Community Hospital, along with Barren County Judge-Executive Davie Greer and others.
