RCES Group 313 Visits RMH
RMH hosted Richland County Elementary School classroom 313 recently. While at RMH, the group of 25 kids gave the Administration Team a presentation on how every person has the capability to be a leader. The group is made up of students who have learning difficulties, as well as students who have average and gifted ability levels.
RCES has been engaged in The Leader in Me process since 2008. The Leader in Me conducts Symposiums around the US to teach schools and individual educators how to implement a leadership model. Classroom 313 has an opportunity to present a breakout session to over 100 teachers, administrators, and community stakeholders. Every student in 313 has a leadership role and an opportunity to speak with adults. Although some students in this group have obstacles ranging from special needs, medical issues, single parent households and low income households, every single person is a growing, contributing, vital member of the learning community! The planning, rehearsing, speech writing, public speaking, out-of-state travel, and leadership opportunities will provide real-life experiences to make the kids better learners, leaders, and citizens now and in the future.
The students have already given their presentation in Kentucky at a “Leadership in Me” symposium. After that presentation, they were invited to present in Kansas City, so the students are currently fundraising for the trip. RMH donated $2,000 to the group for their upcoming Kansas City trip.
