Last week was Spirit Week at SLP. Each day had it's own hashtag. Wednesday was #WishyouwerethatWednesday and all the students dressed up as the career they wish to pursue in the future. We had doctors, football players, a business man, a veterinarian, and an artist...just to name a few!
SLP was lucky enough to have guest speaker Charles Ward come and chat with us! Charles Ward, along with being Caleb's dad, is an outstanding all-around athlete! He won the Heisman Trophy in 1993 for Florida State University. After graduation, he had a successful career playing professional basketball. He went to play for New York Knicks, San Antonio Spurs and later our very own Houston Rockets! He is currently coaching football at Westbury Christian School.
Not only is Charles Ward's athletic abilities awe-inspiring, but he is also an incredible role-model. He believes in helping his community and being a good influence on his peers as well as those who look up to him. "It’s a blessing to have an opportunity to impact young kids like this and I am cherishing the opportunity, " he says of helping young minds. He is a man of faith and has extensive knowledge in success principles. He discussed the Pyramid of Success in which he details the principles that lead one on the path to a promising future.
The Pyramid of Success is as follows:
These are keys to success. Mr. Ward helped us understand how these things will help represent our brand! What is your brand, you ask? Your brand is YOU, your name, your family, and everyone who has helped you achieve all that you have achieved....and of course, God. One must always represent their brand in a bright light!
