NEF announces funding drive                               
to expand life skills program

NOVI, Mich. – The Novi Educational Foundation (NEF) has a “vision.”  It’s simple – but very powerful!

What if…the entire Novi school district was filled with students who were responsible, who showed initiative, who were creative, who knew how to set goals and meet them, who got along with people of various backgrounds and cultures and who could resolve conflicts and solve problems?

“It’s about PERSONAL LEADERSHIP,” says Geoff Wood, NEF chairperson. “The NEF wants all Novi children to become leaders of their own life, have unique talents and make a positive difference in the world. That’s why we support – and want to expand – all the good things about Leader In Me.”
