McKinley Rush, Cathryn Jones, Mercedes Phegley, Karli Graves

Thesis

Society is impacted by the leadership qualities of a servant's heart, good character, communication, and confidence. These qualities defy the standard of the wealthy, provide hope, and allow for advancement as well as expansion in society.

What is a Leader?

A good leader is one who has power and uses this to inspire, and change society for what both the people and his own beliefs deem correct. He/she also has the qualities of a servants heart, good character, communication, and confidence that allow him to be the most influential and impactful on society. Finally, a leader is someone who gives hope not just advice and advancement. Without these qualities or a leader at all, society will never change.

Conclusion

Without the qualities of servant's heart, good character, communication, and confidence, you can not be a good leader. Without leaders no one would be given a beacon of hope , no one would be able to defy the standard of the wealthy, and no one would be able to allow society to advance and expand. A leader can do many things and still impact socitey in a positive way. John Quincy Adams said, "If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader." We believe he was right.
