WBKO, an ABC affiliate, has partnered with Flora Templeton Stuart, Attorney at Law to launch a leadership event with Poppy to recognize schools who have empowered students to lead, learn, excel and serve our community. The chosen school and students will be recognized for outstanding achievement. All schools in south central Kentucky from grades K - 12 will have the opportunity to be recognized for empowering their students to lead by reaching their full potential in academics, sports, arts, and community service.
To win Poppy’s Field Trip, superintendents, principals, teachers, and full-time staff can nominate your school or school group throughout the year by filling out the online form below. WBKO will select nominated schools for voting by viewers. The school with the most votes will win Poppy’s Leadership Award and be featured on AM Kentucky.
Winning schools will be entered in a Grand Prize Drawing at the end of the contest period. The selected school will receive a $2,000 check to be used to promote leadership activities and/or ‘Leader in Me’ initiatives and programs.
T. C. Cherry Elementary is a Leader Me School who has partnered to create a 7 Habit's Walking Trail. Each station of activity (jump rope, monkey bars, etc.) has a sign that explains which one of the 7 habits it represents. This walking trail is not only for student use, but faculty and family as well. The tradition of upholding the 7 habits outside of school, literally, takes shaper here at T. C. Cherry. Our school definitely stands out because of this unique interpretation of the habits.
Our school is a great place to learn and to grow. Our teachers and staff work towards a common goal of having ALL of our students achieve the most they possibly can. And that dedication shows in our students' high achievement on test scores and the leadership they show in our school. Students take the lead in projects with enthusiasm and dedication, and the results are amazing.
