Last spring, the North Central High School athletic department began a new initiative designed at going the extra mile to promote leadership throughout the Knights’ and Lady Knights’ athletic teams. School athletic coaches and officials have taken several groups both last year and this year to different leadership workshops and forums. The exposure and education gained at such events teach these students to return to the school and cultivate a culture changing mentality.
