To have the integrity do what is right even when no one is looking and courage to speak up when a mistake is made.


Apply the standards on every task without exception.


A life style of expecting perfection in everything that you do.


A willingness to be coached and mentored to inspire the people around you.


Looking beyond ones self to help those in the organization, community, nation and world.
