Brainchild of Chillicothe Schools program succumbed to an April accident
Stephen R. Covey, author of "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People" - as well as three other books that have all sold more than a million copies - has died at age 79.
His family said in a statement that the writer and motivational speaker passed away in a hospital early Monday because of complications from an April accident.
Covey was hospitalized after being knocked unconscious in a bicycle accident on a steep road in the foothills of Provo, Utah, about 45 miles south of Salt Lake City.
Chillicothe schools are gradually expanding their program based on his work. Student's accomplishments were celebrated in this year's annual banquet by the Chamber of Commerce.
