23 cadets from Lincoln-Way completed a one-week intensive, competitive leadership camp in Dayton, Ohio earlier this month. Ohio Valley Leadership School brings together over 130 cadets from 7 different schools and 4 states. Cadets are pushed hard in a military-style environment where they learn the value of teamwork, camaraderie, and what it takes to be a leader. The week-long program is designed to instill discipline and resiliency, but have fun along the way. Cadets also went canoeing, indoor skydiving, and paintballing. At the end of camp, an awards ceremony highlighted their achievements where ten LW students received awards. To see the list, visit the website: https://www.lw210.org/article/766783
