On Friday, I was invited to a proclamation ceremony at Holy Cross Catholic School in Defiance. The hard work of the students and staff over the last several years has paid off. Holy Cross has been named a Lighthouse School. In fact, they are the first private school in the state of Ohio to receive this distinction. The students and staff worked hard on the 7 Habits of the Leader In Me program to be able to receive this prestigious recognition. It was truly wonderful to see the young people in action on Friday, as much of the program was led by members of their Student Lighthouse Team. I applaud their efforts and look forward to the amazing leadership we will see out of these future leaders.
