MONROE – Rocky River Elementary has been named a Leader in Me Lighthouse School.
Rocky River is one of 417 schools in the world and the second in Union County to earn the certification, according to Union County Public Schools. Indian Trail Elementary earned its status in 2016.
“While the Lighthouse recognition is wonderful and affirming, the reward is coming to work every day and being part of the Rocky River family,” Principal Sherry Richardson said.
Leader in Me empowers students with the leadership and life skills they need to thrive in the 21st century. FranklinCovey Education awards the designation to schools with a proven, well-rounded leadership model.
Lighthouse schools must meet nine standards that include parent involvement and events to share the leadership model.
“Rocky River is a place where students belong, staff and students want to be and where everyone is a leader,” Richardson said.
