William S. Raybold, Principal, Conway Elementary School, Stafford County Public Schools

Dianna Flett, through her wit, her incredible ability to connect any content to her audience, and her great intellect, continues to be a great force here in the Conway Community.  Whether it is empowering our young ladies through “Girl Smarts”, helping us launch “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” with our staff, or keynoting before an audience of 1,000 people for Veteran’s Day, Mrs. Flett has left a lasting impression on us all.  There is no leader, speaker, or person that has entered our building that has had such an impact as her.

As the mother of twin girls and a full time professional engineer, I didn’t realize how my gender biases were affecting my girls.  Dianna Flett, in her gracious yet encouraging way, helped me realize how I can mentor my girls and give them essential skills for leadership they will need in today’s workplace.
