West Wilson Middle School adopts new character development program
For the 2016-2017 school year, West Wilson Middle School began a new character development program for all students in grades 6-8. Created by the Medal of Honor Organization, the goal of this program is to provide students the knowledge and the opportunity to incorporate and to explore the core values of the Medal of Honor. These values include courage, commitment, sacrifice, patriotism, integrity, and citizenship.
Each week students explore, research, and discuss topics presented from the personal accounts of Medal of Honor recipients. These recipients do not glorify war or the fact that they are Medal of Honor Recipients; however, they do demonstrate many of the principles upon which America was founded in a way that students can understand and relate to their own lives. Additionally, students are challenged each week to put Medal of Honor core values into practice. For example, students may be challenged to show courage by sitting next to a new student at lunch, or students may show patriotism by writing a thank you note to a police officer, fireman, or military personnel.
Medal of Honor recipient Colonel Jack H. Jacobs states, “The Medal of Honor Character Development Program demonstrates with crystal clarity that our young citizens, those who will carry our democracy into the future, can be taught the importance of service to the community and the core values that made this nation great.” The faculty of West Wilson Middle School has embraced this worthwhile program to do just that—to teach our students the value and importance of being good citizens and individuals who make valuable contributions to our school and community.
