On Tuesday October 28th, Dr. Tim Elmore spoke at Jackson Prep with an emphasis on Growing Leaders in our Community, as part of the Global Leadership Institute’s series of Insight Forums.

Dr. Elmore founded the non-profit organization Growing Leaders as an attempt to develop young leaders. A nationally-known speaker, Dr. Elmore has lead numerous classes with football teams at schools such as the University of Alabama and Baylor.

Dr. Elmore spoke at Prep throughout the day.  He started his day at in the Fortenberry Theatre, where the whole student body met to listen to him.

As a nineteen year old college student, Dr. Elmore wanted to be remembered as the man who, “influenced the influencers.” To the students, he talked about the importance of thinking about how they wanted to be remembered- a life sentence.

A luncheon was held in the Centre for Arts and Leadership at 12:00, where 250 community leaders were served lunch by 30 Jackson Prep students.

At press time, Dr. Elmore was scheduled to conclude his busy day by talking to the Jackson Prep faculty about developing leaders in the classroom.
