  • OCS training little leaders

    For most elementary school students, synergize is often one of those big people words that has little meaning to their day-to-day lives.

    But in roughly half the elementary schools in Oldham County Schools, synergize is as common a word as pencil, backpack or book.

    That’s because five schools are implementing the Leader in Me program, which is based off the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People book many businesses give out to their employees.
