Lollipops and leaders.

When I was a sophomore in high school, I didn't really have any friends. I remember one day sitting by myself in the hallway to eat lunch. Tanner Skousen, who was the Student Body President at the time, walked by carrying a ladder. He was obviously pretty busy, but he stopped to say "hello" and to ask me about the book I was reading. He called me by name. I couldn't believe that he, possibly the most popular student in the school, knew my name! I'll never forget how important he made me feel that day. Everyday leadership is about small acts of kindness of immeasurable influence.
