    2. Responsibility- To be someone that others can rely and depend on, to be trusted to do what needs to be done, and to be accountable for our own actions.
    3. Cooperation- Working together to achieve a common goal.
    4. Integrity- Acting with a sense of what is right and what is wrong.
    5. Perseverance- Working toward the desired goal, even when it is difficult.
