I would like to take a moment and commend the many members of our Leadership Academy, for putting on a tremendous event yesterday: The 10th Annual BAEH Leadership Conference, held at the Killeen Civic & Conference Center. The theme of this year's conference was "Take a Real Stand".
We hosted students from most of the middle & high school campuses in KISD, as well as many students from other districts in our area, over 400 students in all!
Our Leadership Academy students conducted team-building games and activities, and exhibited true leadership by giving of themselves to make this day special for all of our guests.
We were also blessed by a highly inspirational message from Keith Hawkins, who has taken his motivational presentations all around the country.
In my opinion, a good leader has the courage to stand alone for what he or she believes in, but is also humble enough to realize nothing gets done without working with people. A bad leader, on the other hand, won't take a stand unless it's already popular, but then is prideful enough to think he or she can simply make a vision a reality just by saying so.
Thank you to our Leadership Academy for demonstrating true leadership by taking a stand for good, while working together to make good things happen.
I'm proud of you!
