On Tuesday, November 26 2019, McKinley High School JROTC cadets were provided a Leadership presentation by author and former Marine Veteran Captain Maurice L. Naylon. Capt. Naylon has served overseas in Afghanistan as an embedded advisor to Afghan forces. His experiences led him to author a book on his experiences and shared thoughts on leadership. Cadets listened to his lessons on leadership and provided some interesting questions and thoughts about his experiences. Our presentation was made possible by the initiatives of Mr. Larry Quinn, former Board of Education member and Mrs. Sharon Belton-Cottman the current Board President of the Buffalo Board of Education. Several cadets won copies of Capt. Naylon’s new book “The New Ministry of Truth” for their ability to recall the lessons of leadership and apply the context.
