Robison gave his superintendent’s report, including a presentation about moving the student service and leadership “climate” forward to a more comprehensive “culture” that is maximized, systemized and recognized.
David Poindexter added to the presentation with one of his own about the benefits of a “helping” culture. He said it builds work ethic and confidence, fosters respect for others, improves problem solving and analytic and qualitative skills as well as home skills. He said there a satisfaction found in helping others, and it’s important to college applications. Poindexter said it teaches youths to follow and be a team player as well as to be a leader. Mentors are key, he said.
