Student Leadership Positions

Students can fill a leadership position through election and selection. But they don’t earn the title of  student leaders until they position their leadership through reflection.  In order to do the things a leader does, one has to begin to think the way a leader thinks.

The Gripping Power Of “Taps”

On this Memorial Day, I am mindful of the sacrifice and service of the men and women who have helped secure the freedoms I enjoy in this country. As many prepare for time off of work, bbq’s, time with family, and relaxation, it’s important to not lose sight of the reason this “holiday” exists.

One of the traditions that takes place at every military funeral is the playing of “Taps.” This somber, somewhat eerie tune provides a poignant moment in each ceremony. There is a sense of despair and finality to it. Yet, it is also hopeful.
