Responsibility and high expectations are placed on the shoulders of our high school students every day. It is, perhaps, greater today than in any other time in American history. Their success is measured in terms of test scores, academics along with how they intend on changing the world. Any parent knows there is more than that to define what makes our sons and daughters successful. As parents, we strive to also include them in sports, church, clubs, and activities that will together build within them that confident, well-rounded student of discipline and responsibility.
