NPR remembers Steven Covey, link to Combs Magnet Elementary School

National Public Radio noted the link between Steven Covey and Combs Magnet Elementary School in an article about Covey’s death on Monday and his life’s work as management consultant, writer of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and motivational speaker.

Combs is a leadership magnet school. The NPR article states Combs was the first of more than 800 schools worldwide that embraced Covey’s ideas. Combs principal Muriel Summers says in the article that her school saw an increase in test scores, more engaged families and students making better decisions, when the leadership magnet began teaching Covey’s 7 Habits to students and parents.

You can read more about the connection between Covey and Combs Magnet Elementary in Covey’s book, The Leader in Me: How Schools and Parents Around the World Are Inspiring Greatness, One Child at a Time, published in 2009.
