Julie Hebert will be the first to tell you she is a fan of quotes and sayings. So, there was no better time to pull her 4-H-related quotes out of the bag than Friday morning when she was recognized as the 2015 Acadia Parish 4-H Achievement Day honoree.

'I am a leader'

Ross Elementary first graders show off “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People,” the basis of the Leader in Me program which students, faculty and staff have all taken to at Ross Elementary.

A first grader calls to attention her fellow classmates with one simple word.
“Class?”
“Yes?” they respond in unison.
She calls them to attention once more as they prepare to show off Stephen R. Covey’s “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” to a room full of community and business leaders from across the southern part of the state.
The habits are sandwiched between a sentence that the students are not just saying because they were taught it, but because they believe it.
“I am a leader!”
And it is through that — the Leader in Me Program — that local schools Ross Elementary and Martin Petitjean Elementary, as well as other schools, have really found their way.
