FUESD features keynote speaker at welcome back breakfast

Issue 35, Volume 18.


FALLBROOK – Fallbrook Union Elementary School District (FUESD) hosted Muriel Summers, principal of AB Combs Elementary School as the keynote speaker for its Welcome Back Breakfast on Aug. 7 in the Bowers Auditorium on the Potter Junior High campus. All district employees attended.

Summers is the pioneer who first integrated Steven Covey’s 7 Habits in schools. A.B. Combs Elementary was the first to be recognized as a "Leader in Me School." The Leader in Me is Steven Covey’s (#1 best-selling author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People) book written specifically for students and educators.

During the 2013/2014 school year, all FUESD staff read The Leader in Me and attended trainings to effectively integrate the seven habits into their classrooms, into their school communities, and into the fabric of the district. Currently, all FUESD schools are now "Leader in Me Schools," and FUESD is on course to become the first "Lighthouse District" (the highest level of 7 Habits implementation) in the Advertisement

United States.

The Leader in Me initiative is funded through a sizable, multi-year grant obtained by Candace Singh, superintendent, with funds generously provided by the Panda Cares Foundation.

"We feel truly honored that Muriel Summers came to Fallbrook Union Elementary to deliver the keynote address," said Bill Billingsley, director of student services and communication. "Her inspirational words served as a powerful reminder how The Leader in Me and the 7 Habits have become a unifying thread that connects all FUESD students, teachers and staff."

Many FUESD staff were inspired by Summer’s remarks. "Now, more than ever, I can’t wait for the students to arrive! I am so inspired by Muriel’s remarks. What an amazing kickoff to our school year," said one FUESD elementary teacher as she was leaving the welcome back breakfast.

The Fallbrook Union Elementary School District serves kindergarten through eighth grade students at nine school sites, including two schools located aboard the United States Marine Corps Base at Camp Pendleton.

This lady was a true inspiration, and what a wonderful way to get the new year kicked off. Her words and wisdom and how she works with her children, will forever be edged in my mind. Her personal story of perseverance in her own struggles through her young life should be told throughout all schools. I am so glad to have heard her story and her beautiful inspirational teachings. She is right where she should be in her life and forever in ours.
