Two Scecina Memorial High School juniors participated in The West Point Society of Indiana’s 11th annual Leadership & Ethics Conference in November.
Juniors Andrew Clegg and Will Therber were invited to the conference at the Rolls Royce/UAW Training Center in Indianapolis, along with Scecina President Joe Therber.
The purpose of the West Point conference is to help students confront the ethical challenges that they face in school today, as well as those they will face in years ahead, by giving them tools to use as leaders in their school and community.
“They gave us different scenarios, such as, what would you do if you catch someone cheating on a test at school,” said Andrew, who said having good ethics “makes you a better leader if you do the right thing.”
Will said the conference was “fun and interesting.”
“I learned a lot about how you can carry yourself in a professional,” he said. He said he and Andrew also met a lot of new young people from the community.
During an interactive seminar, the students explored the foundations of ethical leadership and their own personal values. Small group discussions were led by Cadets from West Point, the premier leadership school in the country. The West Point curriculum we use has been used around the country at high schools and colleges to help develop leaders of character.
