One Buncombe County school has successfully used the "Leader in Me" program for three years.

"It shows you like your leadership roles in life, like how you can be a leader. Different ways to be a leader, and to grow up and be a good person,"said one student.

Avery's Creek Elementary School showcased its talented students as the school opened its doors to the community, to show everyone how the program works.

Students are telling the visitors how they can use the seven habits of the "Leader in Me" program, like being proactive and putting first things first, in any situation.

"It's important that people be nice and kind to each other and not lie, because if they lie the other time when its actually real, they won't believe them," said Julia, a third-grader.

TV's in the newly enlarged cafeteria are for announcements--and to show leadership videos.

Many of the students also told us the program has helped them understand how important it is to be more kind to their brothers and sisters, and to be sure to help their parents around the house.
