Letter to the Editor: Pride in our PYE leaders

Staff Writer

I want to congratulate the students and staff of the Penn Yan Elementary for an awesome Leadership Day!

I had the opportunity to spend a few hours there for their first ever day to celebrate the PYE Student Leaders, and I encourage our community to get behind the effort in any way possible. Our young people work hard and are making the future brighter with their efforts to learn fairness, being proactive, and taking care of themselves first so they can help and understand others.

If you have a young person in your family, church or neighborhood, ask them about the “7 Habits” of their school. They will be excited to share what leadership means to them. I personally support the activities and am lucky that my employer, Lyons National Bank, does too! Is there a way for you or your business to be supportive? I bet there is!

Again, congratulations Mrs. Ware, Mr. Kinsey and the entire Penn Yan Elementary family. I am very proud of the school and being part of this super day! Keep up the great work. Thank you!
