Project Wisdom is a character education program for elementary students, which includes one-minute messages read during morning announcements each day.

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.
