The Leader In Me Program at Waynesburg & Crab Orchard

Waynesburg Elementary Principal Mark Upchurch, says there are two words that every student at his school hears every day--two words that he says are making a positive difference. 

"Two words students hear every morning when they get here--from students, teachers and myself are 'good morning'. Kids come to me now and say, 'Good morning, Mr. Upchurch.' When kids are saying good morning," Upchurch continues,  "their perception of that morning is automatically different than when they're just walking around with their heads down. It impacts the way they see the day that's in front of them."
