An extension of the 2015/2016 Lunch With A Cop program, Lead Now is a bi-monthly mentorship program for selected 7th grade students at Kernersville Middle School, designed to introduce and develop leadership skills and encourage responsible behavior both at school and in their personal lives.
    The goal of Lead Now is, through positive behavioral changes, to see an overall academic improvement and a reduction of school disciplinary referrals at the end of the program.  The SRO, other law enforcement officers and community leaders will share experiences and discuss ideas and encourage the students to embrace their leadership potential. Lead Now will promote practical application of leadership principles like Personal Responsibility, Respect for Authority, Leadership through Service and Overcoming Obstacles.
    As these students begin to develop increased feelings of self-confidence and start to see themselves as leaders, they will make a positive impact in their classes and in the school.  
    Please contact Officer Orrellano at KMS with any questions about this program.
