Kinder Morgan Recognizes Conotton Valley Union Local School District’s Commitment to Leadership

Kinder Morgan Vice President of Public Affairs Allen Fore visited Conotton Valley Union Local High School (CVUL) Sept. 29 to speak to students on the merits of leadership while recognizing the district’s commitment to leadership development.

Fore addressed students at Conotton Valley High School during an assembly showcasing the district’s athletic programs and its “Leader in Me” curriculum for the 2016-2017 school year. Kinder Morgan contributed $55,000 to the district in July to support these programs.

“Kinder Morgan is proud to contribute to this initiative that lays the foundation for local students to become the future leaders of their communities,” said Fore. “With the commitment of the Conotton Valley School District combined with your dedicated teachers creating an atmosphere of empowerment, this program will provide outstanding opportunities for generations to come.”

The Leader in Me program, based upon “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People,” teaches 21st century leadership and life skills to students and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader.

In addition to supporting athletic programs, Kinder Morgan’s donation will help CVUL add certified instructors to implement the Leader in Me program to its full capacity, adding the district to the approximately 80 schools in Ohio, and 1,924 across the United States, already enrolled in the program.

“The support we have received from Kinder Morgan will be a tremendous boost to our district and our community now and in the future,” said CVUL Superintendent Todd Herman. “It’s an honor to have a respected leader like Allen Fore share his insights and inspire our students to reach new heights.”
