Marine Corps Seminar Taught Student Athletes About Leadership

CLARK — On Tuesday, April 3, members of the Crusader Athletic Leadership Council from Arthur L. Johnson High School in Clark were involved in the Marine Corps Leadership Seminar. The Marine Corps Leadership Seminar is built around the Marine Corps 14 Leadership Traits and 11 Leadership Principles that are the hallmark of the United States Marine Corps.

A presentation was given to conduct an interactive guided discussion explaining and defining the 14 Leadership Traits and 11 Leadership Principles. The presentation included scenario based examples in which students working in groups identify how they would approach and act in a given scenario utilizing the Leadership Traits and Principals.

This seminar provided the students and members of the Crusader Athletic Leadership Council with leadership strategies and techniques to assist with their high school athletics, academic effort, and overall personal development.

Gus Kalikas, Supervisor of Athletics, Health, and Physical Education at Arthur L. Johnson High School, had this to say about the event. “The C.A.L.C. was thrilled to be able to host Major Ogden and the Marine Leadership Seminar at our Crusader Athletic Leadership Council Meeting. Our Student Athletes learned a lot through both talking about aspects of leadership and role playing various scenarios that integrated the Leadership Traits that were discussed. There is no doubt in my mind that our student athletes will be able to employ these traits in the classrooms and on the fields in order to make themselves better students, athletes, and citizens.”

The C.A.L.C. thanked Major Ogden, Captain Simpson, and all of the Marines that attended the meeting and assisted the Student Athletes of Arthur L. Johnson High School in continuing to strive for excellence.
