Leadership Challenge Encourages Mental and Physical Fitness

Special to Leader-Press
Michayla Medley’s legs shook as she reached for the next hand-hold on the 30-foot tower. Making it to the top of the rock wall wasn’t the only challenge she faced on Fort Hood. The high school freshman was also new to her school at Cove High. But as a military child, she has been forced to adapt.
Medley and nearly a dozen CCHS military students were invited to attend the U.S. Army Child, Youth and School Services quarterly meeting. The physical and mental challenges of the day were led by military personnel. The activities were designed to develop leadership skills of wisdom, knowledge, courage and forming relationships.
“We spread out when we were sitting down and other schools did the same so we could make new acquaintances,” Medley said, “My favorite part of the day was being able to work-out inside the gym.”
