Over the summer, the Executive Board set the motto, vision statement, and core values for the Leadership class for the 2020-2021 school year. "It starts with us, but doesn't end with us". This motto will drive the leadership class to work hard and always keep the entire student body in mind when making decisions. The leadership team strives for every single student on Whitney's campus to feel included and feel like they are an important part of our family.
The mission of the class is to develop students with the fundamental leadership skills necessary to be a leader outside of the school walls. To achieve this mission, 7 core values will be implemented and practiced in every event or activity the class executes. Such activities include but are not limited to clubs, spirit weeks, student section, dances, WUM lessons and LTA’s. The class will be a family that collaboratively works to serve the school with the most positive culture around.
Core value #1- Positivity. Students will keep a positive attitude no matter the situation. It’s important to remain supportive of everything and everyone!
Core value #2 - Accountability. Students will make sure that they are doing all they can for the better of Whitney High School. If not, we will direct each other in the correct direction.
Core value #3 - Respect. Students are expected to respect themselves above all things. The actions students take are a direct reflection of how much they respect themselves and ultimately WHS.
Core value #4 - Committment. Students in leadership understand that without sacrifice there is no victory. Our work is not only during leadership class. We will embrace our time together and be a FAMILY.
Core value #5 - Communication. Students understand collaborating is the most effective way to get things done. Students will all be on the same page which will ensure efficiency within the group.
Core value #6 - Initiative. We are a program that is proactive in the planning process of events. We must make sure to cross our T’s and dot our I’s. It’s also important to value the skill of being a service member of the class.
