Actual message shared regarding "Role Models" 

Good morning, Indian Rock faculty, staff, and students.  This is Dr. Gulley with a few words of wisdom.  Gandhi was a national hero of India, a man who made a huge difference in the world by teaching that being violent is not the best way to solve our differences.  Gandhi was a role model for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who also taught nonviolence.  In other words, what Gandhi said and did affected the life of Dr. King in a positive way.

 

Did you know that you don't have to be a world-famous hero to affect someone else's life?  In fact, you don't have to be an adult.  No matter what your age, you can be a positive role model.  That's right!  Being a positive role model just means that you set a good example for others to follow.  Today, be a positive role model by helping a younger student or setting a good example for your classmates or choosing to do the right thing even when its' hard to do.

 

With something to think about, this is Dr. Gulley.  Make it a great day . . . or not.  The choice is yours.
