Rotary Last Week       

LTC. Dave Jones (Values Outreach Program) (In search of ethics)

Col, Jones gave a most interesting and inspiring address on Character, leadership, integrity and the ability to know what is right, desire what is right and DO what is right in your life.

This should be practiced, not only by Cadets, but also by persons in all walks of life, and the world will be a better place to live in for all!
