Character development and leadership
By NG3 staff
Hutson Mason stands in front of the entire UGA football team and is charged with a seemingly remedial task of leading his teammates with jumping jacks. That may seem like a non-issue, but it very well may have been one of the most high pressure situations Mason faced all year.
The coaching staff brought in a team of Navy Seals to teach the team about discipline, teamwork, and servant leadership, and Mason found himself in the crosshairs of the Seals’ attention.
This new, student-led initiative on Grayson’s campus has empowered more than 20 student athletes to step up and lead their peers in discussing topics that will build men and women of strong character for tomorrow. Possibly the most inspiring piece about this program, Mattox feels as if, “most of the student leaders have been waiting for someone to give them permission and an opportunity to lead.”
Across our high school campuses, student athletes are hearing and witnessing the importance of character and are given the opportunity to strengthen their faith through the presence of NG3. Young men and women are given chances to stand up and lead and make a positive difference in the lives of their peers. If you think more needs to be done to ensure our high schoolers are prepared to face the challenges of life and do so while making courageous choices, you are not alone. NG3 is dedicated to being the consistent voice of truth in our high schools and would love for you to join the cause, because character does change communities.
