Words to lead by #inspire #motivate

LT quotes

Dear Soldotna High School Stars,

In December, KPBSD “Student Voice” leaders–many from your school–put forth an invite to schools to connect in a creative gift exchange celebrating our district. The KPBSD district office leadership team opted-in to play, and we drew Soldotna High School!

May these words of wisdom which guide and motivate your district leadership team also offer you inspiration.

Happy 2017 ~ may you shine this year! Cheers!
