Nelson Mandela stated, "Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world." In order to change the world of the students in Lexington School District 3, they must be provided the opportunity to succeed. School Board members must develop relationships with students, parents, faculty and all stakeholders. It is important to highlight the positive actions of each student and use them as a motivational tool for success. School Board members should embody the attitude they desire from their school district and live their lives as the example. Every day is a sermon that someone else could see or hear and every moment is a chance that could change a life forever.
