My Students

I would like to introduce a great group of students who are being introduced to the world of leadership. Our school has never had this program so we are starting at from the ground floor with uniforms and equipment.

This school year our class started with no resources, and we most likely will not have any for the remainder of this year.

But, I believe that every child is entitled to a 1st class education, beginning on the first day of school.

Our goal of this program is to teaching leadership at this age along with the values of this country, enhances character and citizenship in our communities. Our program has already proven effective but is hungry for advancement.

“Witnessing the pride and confidence we are creating through this program is priceless!”

My Project

These utility belts and white gloves will continue to enhance our program by giving our kids the tools they need to be successful in uniformity. It will accent other parts of their uniform as well as carry their water canteens when we get them. We are "eating the elephant one bite at a time!" Getting it right on the first try builds confidence in the kids and shows that the program really does provide a way for them to be productive and learn something new with the proper tools. Looking sharp and synchronized is important!

All students are entitled to outstanding leadership and guidance!

Showing them what winning looks like from the beginning is important to gain their confidence and to build their character. The right tools and a confident leader in the classroom is a must!
