Growing Tomorrow's Leaders Today

Oftentimes, people are characterized as born-leaders; however, more often than not, leaders are grown. Colquitt County School System, GeorgiaLEADS, and the Georgia Chamber of Commerce have partnered to grow the future leaders of Colquitt County.

Beginning in January, students in kindergarten through fifth grade began receiving research-based leadership instruction coupled with language arts lessons centered on curriculum developed by the J.W. fanning Institute for Leadership Development.  “This research-based curriculum recognizes that everyone has leadership potential and introduces the concepts of leadership, citizenship, and character traits associated with effective leaders,” shared Dr. Marni Kirkland, Curriculum Director.  Click here for full press release.

Pictured are Stringfellow Elementary School teachers and students discussing the differences between inside and outside traits and how those traits can affect leadership.
