Honor: honesty-high principles, trustworthiness, loyalty, truthfulness, punctuality, moral strength and stability, cleanliness in mind and body.
Service: cooperation, meritorious behavior bringing honor to school or community, kindliness, unselfishness, true Americanism-individual responsibility to Home, to County, to God.
Courage: mental and physical, determination to overcome obstacles.
Leadership: personality, originality, ability to lead and hold others, good sportsmanship-responsibility.
