Students learn the benefits of respect

Harry S Truman Elementary is taking charge to instill the value of respect within their students.

Nicole Hager, education coordinator with J.P. Mascaro & Sons, visited the school Sept. 6 with their respect program and challenged the students to take care of the earth in the sense they treat the world as their backyard.

Aretha Franklin's song "Respect" played the theme of the presentation.

Hager said respect is something that needs to be earned, and can be gained through caring, honesty, trust and sharing feelings.
