Warren County Public Schools is pleased to announce that Lost River Elementary has become the ninth WCPS school to earn the prestigious “The Leader In Me,” Lighthouse status. This is the highest honor attainable through “The Leader In Me” initiative. In order to achieve this recognition, Lost River Elementary School had to pass a rigorous Lighthouse Review by meeting more than 120 criteria in nine focus areas established by the Franklin Covey “The Leader In Me” organization.
“WCPS is committed to ensuring safety, achievement, and opportunity for every student,” stated Superintendent Rob Clayton. “I am extremely proud of Principal Goff and the entire Lost River community for incorporating the 7 Habits into the school’s daily culture, vocabulary, and routine. The skills attained through the Franklin Covey The Leader In Me is a foundation that builds student leaders and will undoubtedly have a life-long impact on our students beyond their K-12 experience in WCPS.”
In 2014 Briarwood Elementary and Natcher Elementary became the first two schools in the state of Kentucky to earn the Lighthouse achievement, and WCPS continues to lead the state as six additional schools have also achieved the highest honor. Alvaton Elementary and Plano Elementary earned the distinction in 2015, followed by North Warren Elementary in 2016. Cumberland Trace Elementary and Rockfield Elementary followed in 2017. In 2019 Richardsville and Lost River Elementary have attained the honor. A formal banner presentation will be scheduled in the months ahead, and Lost River Elementary will be recognized at the Warren County Board of Education Meeting in May.
