Each student was nominated by his or her coach to participate and the students were accompanied to the leadership summit by Coach Erin Lloyd and Athletic Director Heath Morris.

Students spent the day learning about integrity in athletics. Keynote Speaker Mike Long, Hudson Valley Community College Head Boys Basketball Coach, provided an introduction, and then students attended breakout sessions to discuss integrity issues and the importance of decision making.

“All of the students who participated deserve to be recognized,” Morris said. “They represented our district with pride and had great thoughts and ideas to contribute to the discussion of athletic integrity.”
