We are happy to report the 15th Annual West Point Leadership and Ethics Conference (WPLEC) that took place on March 17th was back to in-person and a huge success with the help of our sponsors and volunteers. As a reminder, about 50 local high schools participate in the conference each year by sending four 11th graders who have been identified as school leaders. Each of the 200+ students will learn how to deal with leadership and ethical challenges in an ethical decision-making model. It is based on a well-founded decision-making model and framework taught to United States Military Academy cadets. While it is mostly a small group workshop method, WPLEC had some impressive speakers, Dr. Linda Singh, Dr. Nardos King, and 1LT Simone Askew this year. You can watch their videos by clicking on their names.
