Bishops Gate Golf Academy (BGGA) Leadership and Character Division hosted a Habitudes Leadership event for students on January 15, 2018.
At BGGA, the focus isn’t only on golf. The Academy is driven to instill excellence in golf and character in students and holding these types of events drives home that focus.
BGGA students had the day off from school for Martin Luther King Jr. Day and spent their time learning what it takes to become a great leader.
The highlight of the event came when Timothy Alexander shared his story and inspired the students. Timothy Alexander has dedicated his life to motivating and inspiring others. Timothy was ranked the #8 high school football player in his state and had the opportunity to play for any college in the country. A life changing car accident in 2006 left him paralyzed from the neck down. Even though his dreams of playing college and professional football were shattered that day, Alexander has gone on to accomplish new dreams and find his purpose in life.
The students were captivated by his story and took to heart his message about being able to do anything they want to do by being persistent, resilient, consistent and committed.
The presentation was led by Executive Leadership Coach Michael Arnold and Andrew McPeak of Growing Leaders.
Arnold will continue the Habitudes series with students by holding more seminars throughout the semester.
