With the help of educators, teens in central Illinois are working towards building trust, all while practicing life’s core values.
During a presentation at Limestone High School, students listened to national speaker Tony Cicero on the importance of diversity and inclusion. For more than 20 years, Cicero has been spreading the message of caring for others. Educators hope the lessons students learned on Friday will stay with them for years to come.
“The golden rule is absolutely at play,” said LHS principal Jeri Look. “Treat others the way you want to be treated. We know that when kids are in their teenage years, emotions are huge and we need to make our schools a safe place for them to be.”
Even after graduating high school, Limestone staff hopes students continue to practice these lessons in higher education and in the workplace.
