    Standing up for others represents bravery. Being kind represents courage.

    These are some of President Lincoln's "superpowers," according to students at Leadership Day at Weaverville Elementary.

    "You have to be brave so if anything bad happens you can stand up and face it," said Addy, a second-grader.

    As a Leader in Me school, Weaverville Elementary wants to empower its students to be the best they can be -- and to always do the right thing, even when no one is looking.

    "I learned that it's important to be a leader. And you should be a leader, not a follower," said Aidan, a second-grader.

    Max is a good listener. That's his superpower.

    As part of the leadership showcase the high school senior returned to Weaverville Elementary to offer words of encouragement, to encourage students to stay on the right path.
