Central Catholic High School is adopting what it calls the 'Servant Leadership' program to its successful athletic and sports programs, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
President Paul Garro says the coaches will instill 'Servant Leadership' programs in their sports.
"Model with their athletes to develop higher intrinsic motivation, tenacity, grit, unwavering values, a solid work ethic, and athletes who perform at consistently high levels," Garro said.
Garro says, in addition to what he calls 'Servant Leadership 330,' a reference to the fact that this is the 165th anniversary of Central Catholic's founding, and the plan will lead Central into the next 165 years.
"Coaches who use the methods advocated by the servant leader model, produce athletes with a healthier psychological profile for sports, perform better on the playing field, and also perform well in life," Garro said.
Central Catholic will also instill the Marianist brothers and priests' philosophy in its Center for Excellence in Educating Boys annual leadership summit, as well as in new partnerships with St. Mary's University, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and Providence and Incarnate Word high schools.
