LIVE UNITED Story
Leader in Me
When Chris joined McKinley in 2017, he had undergone some personal struggles, had a history of low self-esteem and lacked confidence, both socially and academically. By the end of the year, Chris had become “a model student,” taking on many leadership roles, achieving excellent attendance, joining four after-school programs and volunteering at every parent and family involvement event. The Leader in Me process helped Chris become the young man he was always meant to be.
