CCS Warrior Leadership Academy students traveled to Washington, D.C. for their Student Leadership University 201 experience.
The conference was headlined with an awesome speech by Dr. Ben Carson. He connected with the students in a powerful way, not only sharing his unbelievable journey, but he really did a great job bringing glory to the power of God. He did all of this while teaching several powerful leadership lessons related to developing yourself for God’s service. It was awesome.
Students had the opportunity to learn from Dr. Jay Strack, Jeff Struecker (former Army Ranger who participated in the 'Black Hawk Down' mission), and Chaplain Barry Black (Chaplain for the United States Senate). From these lessons, students were shown what it means to be a leader for Christ with the heart of a patriot.
During the conference, CCS students toured the Holocaust Museum, The Museum of the Bible, The Smithsonian Museum of American History, as well as many monuments. While at the Hallowed ground of Arlington Cemetery, students witnessed the laying of a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier as well as the changing of the Guard.
Coach Hogan is confident our students took away many important lessons to grow and develop strong, patriotic, Christian leaders.
