Leadership at Lennox

A team of staff and students from the elementary and middle school presented to the Leadership/Management Team at Lennox in Marshalltown.  Their team was extremely impressed by BCLUW and the work being done with the 7 Habits.  We received the following from Lennox following our visit/presentation:  “On behalf of the Lennox Leadership Development Organization we would like to thank the students and administration for the wonderful presentation on the 7 Habits and how your school is implementing this program. Everyone was highly impressed with the students’ knowledge of the program and how they are using it in their daily lives (and how well behaved they were)! They were equally impressed with how the school has gone above and beyond to get the staff, students, parents, and community involved with such life-altering program. It was also a great opportunity for the students to speak in public and they did an amazing job!”
