On the afternoon, Martyn Sayer (JR/Liverpool, England) lectured about integrity as well as servant leadership, Tristan Smith (JR/Rocky River, Ohio) spoke about the importance of responsibility, Dylan Stevens (SR/Canal Winchester, Ohio) discussed respect, andAvery Patton (SR/Pickerington, Ohio) stressed the meaning of leadership.
