Leader in Me

Join the Movement.

Henderson County Education Foundation is embarking on a journey to bring The Leader in Me to Henderson County Public Schools. Currently, there are eleven Leader in Me schools in Henderson County: Apple Valley Middle School, Atkinson, Dana, Edneyville, Fletcher, Hillandale, Mills River, Rugby Middle School, Sugarloaf & Upward and North Henderson High School.

The Leader in Me is FranklinCovey’s whole school transformation process. It teaches 21st century leadership and life skills to students and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader.

Since 2017 HCEF and Community Foundation of Henderson County have been co-leading the effort to add more Leader in Me Schools in Henderson County. In the last four years, nine schools have been added.

By the numbers:

Students have received access to whole-person, 21st century skill building education.

Teachers, admin & staff have been afforded the opportunity to develop their own leadership skills and teaching practices.

Professional development workshops have been held across the district.
