23 News Anchor Mike Garrigan had a fun opportunity to sit in as principal for a day at Highland Elementary School in Stillman Valley.

Mike was quite impressed with the programs the Pre K through 2nd grade school has in place for it's kids. One of the more unique programs is a character education curriculum called "Leader In Me", based on Stephen Covey's seven habits. Something Mullikin says the students aged 3 to 8 pick up really well.

"Our kids are talking about synergizing. They're talking about thinking win-win," said Highland Elementary Principal Joe Mullikan. "It just really is an awesome curriculum to build that character; so that when they get into a situation where they have to persevere, they have a set of skills that allows them to be able to persevere through those situations."
