Mauldin Elementary tweets pro athlete to talk leadership

News

Mauldin Elementary School students are on a mission. They want to bring a professional athlete to their school to talk about leadership. 
The students and administrators are working with a new process this year called The Leader in Me.  
They’re asking Green Bay Packers Quarterback Aaron Rodgers to stop by their school to add his thoughts on being a good leader. 
Rodgers is in town for the BMW Charity Pro-Am and the students have been tweeting at him for weeks asking him to come speak about what it takes to be a leader. 
Principal Jamie Spinks said “Leader in Me” focuses on life skills creating a culture of student empowerment. 
Instructors stress that every student has leadership potential and teachers said taking ownership at school helps struggling students engage and be more successful.
They said students made these videos with minimal help from adults.
It’s based off the 7 Habits of Highly Effective people or happy kids series from best selling author Stephen Covey.
