Dominique Moceanu, New York Times Best Selling American author and retired American gymnast, was the guest speaker at Granger Elementary School on September 12. Moceanu, a member of the gold-medal-winning United States women's gymnastics team at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, was the first of three keynote speakers scheduled this school year as part of the "Keys for Success" initiative at Granger Elementary. The initiative, sponsored by The Highland Foundation for Educational Excellence, will help students build upon "Granger's 3 R's" (Respectful, Responsible and Ready to Lead) and help them strive for success and focus on the future. Mrs. Moceanu, a Hinckley resident and owner of a local gymnastics center, spoke to students about her life leading up the Olympics, striving for success and what it takes to be a leader. She offered them age-appropriate leadership skills that they can apply while at school and at home.
