Make integrity a priority! Having integrity can take a long time to learn, but the more a person practices and is made aware of integrity, the more likely she or he will develop this crucial value. We want students to embrace their peers, teachers, and school. Having values doesn’t mean much if you can’t stand up for them—an important lesson to impart upon the youth. Everyone’s values and beliefs are tested at some point in their lives, and it takes strong conviction to stand up for them in the face of adversity.
