OPPORTUNITIES FOR LEADERSHIP
LEADERSHIP ON AND OFF THE FIELD
“Great leaders have vision, are
competent in their daily duty,
and care deeply about people.
They exhibit a style of quiet
excellence with no ego, a strong
work ethic, and steadiness under
pressure. Character and honor,
love of country and service,
describe their drive and inner
strength.”
Gen. J.H.Binford Peay III '62
