Create a Lasting Legacy , Part II

In my role as a High School Principal, I am keenly aware of the importance of legacy. Our school is a symbol of pride, excellence, determination, and commitment. As the Principal, I am responsible for honoring and moving our legacy forward.

The vast popularity of Rick Warren’s book The Purpose-Drive Life was in part based on this desire, which became evident when millions of people bought the book.
