No definition of a successful life can do anything but include serving others. – George H.W. Bush
One of our goals is teaching our students the value of service. One of our three core values as a district is “Power of the Team.” We instill in young people the value of listening, caring, and serving. We model empathy and demand respect. In a society that often glorifies individual accomplishments, we create opportunities for teamwork and collaboration.
No one modeled a true sense of service to others more than President George H.W. Bush. His life is a true model of service to his country, to humanity. As a father, husband, Navy Pilot, and ultimately President of the United States, President Bush led with his values, faith, and heart. We study history so today’s young people learn about those who paved the way. I have faith that by serving this generation, others will dedicate their lives to service too.
