LEADERSHIP PLAYS A VITAL ROLE IN TODAY’S SOCIETY, YET SOME PEOPLE DON’T UNDERSTAND WHAT IT TRULY MEANS TO BE A LEADER SAYS STORM DIAL, A SENIOR AT EMPORIA HIGH SCHOOL. OFTEN TIMES PEOPLE VIEW A LEADER AS SOMEONE WHO IS AT THE FRONT OF THE PACK BLAZING A TRAIL FOR THE REST. TRUE LEADERS TAKE A STEP BACK, ASSESS THE SITUATION AND USE ALL OF THE GROUP’S SKILLS AND ABILITIES TO REACH THE GOAL. AS LAO TZU, A CHINESE PHILOSPHER, ONCE SAID, “WHEN THE BEST LEADER’S WORK IS DONE, THE PEOPLE WILL SAY ‘WE DID IT OURSELVES.’”

FROM DEBATE CHAMPIONSHIPS IN THE FALL, PIANO FESTIVALS IN THE WINTER, SPEECH & DRAMA CHAMPIONSHIPS IN THE SPRING AND STUCO WORKSHOP IN THE SUMMER; ALONGSIDE MANY MORE OPPORTUNITES YEAR ROUND, KSHSAA MAKES SURE THAT STUDENTS HAVE THE OPPORTUNITIES TO BCOME WELL ROUNDED CITIZENS OUTSIDE OF THE CLASSROOM.

RACHEL SCHENKER, A RECENT GRADUATE FROM OSWEGO HIGH SCHOOL, SAYS ONE IMPORTANT ASPECT OF ACTIVITIES IS TEAMWORK. A TEAM CAN HAVE MULTIPLE PLAYERS THAT EXCEL, BUT IF THE TEAM DOES NOT SET COMMON GOALS AND UNITE, THEY WILL NOT BE SUCCESSFUL. IT IS VITAL THAT A TEAM COMES TOGETHER AS ONE. WHEN A TEAM REALIZES THAT THEY ARE ALL IN IT TOGETHER, THAT IS WHEN THEY SUCCEED. TEAMWORK MAKES THE DREAM WORK.

LINDSEY ANDERSON, A RECENT GRADUATE FROM CHAPMAN HIGH SCHOOL, SAYS SPORTS REQUIRE A LOT OF HARD WORK TO BE SUCCESSFUL. GIVING ALL YOUR EFFORT ALL THE TIME IS HARD AND MOST PEOPLE AREN’T WILLING TO DO IT. HIGH SCHOOL ACTIVITIES TEACH YOUNG PEOPLE HOW A GOOD WORK ETHIC OFTEN RESULTS IN POSITIVE OUTCOMES. COMPLAINTS ARE MADE ABOUT THIS GENERATION’S LAZINESS AND BAD WORK ETHIC. STUDENTS WHO CHOOSE TO PARTICIPATE IN ACTIVITIES OFFERED AT THEIR HIGH SCHOOL LEARN VALUABLE LIFE LESSONS SUCH AS THIS ONE.

DURING HIS HIGH SCHOOL EXPERIENCE, COYD GARDNER, A RECENT GRADUATE FROM CENTRAL HEIGHTS HIGH SCHOOL IN RICHMOND, KS, HAS HAD MANY DIFFERENT COACHES, ALL OF THEM WITH AN ABUNDANCE OF DIFFERENT SAYINGS TO SAY EACH DAY.

THIS IS ONE OF THE MANY REASONS WHY EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES ARE IMPORTANT TO A HIGH SCHOOL CAREER.

SPORTSMANSHIP IS SOMETIMES VERY HARD TO FIND IN SPORTS TODAY, BUT JACE WATKINS, A SENIOR FROM BURLINGTON HIGH SCHOOL, BELIEVES IT IS STILL ON SOLID GROUND IN HIGH SCHOOL ACTIVITIES.

TEAMWORK MAKES THE DREAM WORK! WHEN YOU ARE PLAYING ON A TEAM, IT TAKES EVERY SINGLE PLAYER TO ACHIEVE SUCCESS. CYNAE WILEY, A SENIOR AT SOUTH HAVEN HIGH SCHOOL’S SOFTBALL COACH SAYS THAT BENCHES WIN BALLGAMES. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? IT MEANS THAT BEING EXCITED AND ENCOURAGING OTHERS FROM THE DUGOUT IS AN IMPORTANT TEAM CONTRIBUATION, EVEN IF YOU AREN’T ON THE FIELD. NEGATIVE TEAMMATES CAN DRAG THE WHOLE TEAM DOWN. ACTIVITIES TEACH YOU HOW TO GET ALONG WITH OTHERS AND WORK TOGETHER TOWARD A COMMON GOAL. THIS IMPORTANT SKILL SET IS ONE THAT IS NECESSARY FOR THE WORKPLACE AFTER WE GRADUATE.

IN HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS, NO TEAM IS SUCCESSFUL WITHOUT TEAMWORK, SAYS RYAN CUNNINGHAM, A RECENT GRADUATE FROM WASHBURN RURAL HIGH SCHOOL IN TOPEKA, KS.
