In the upcoming edition of the Knightly Knews, we’re going to take a look at the Knights Club as our cover story. In advance of printing, we’re going to run part of that story now by taking a look at how you can locate a Knight on campus and how the club impacts every student regardless of how they are performing at the time.
If you ask a student if he is a Knight, you’ll get one of two responses: an enthusiastic “yes” or an embarrassed “no.” When you ask a student why he doesn’t have his Knight, you’ll probably receive a list a reasons that focus around his behaviors. This is a step in the right direction. Although it would be great if that student was performing better, it is important to understand that the Club has played a role in identifying areas where he has to improve. For the eager student who answers “yes,” be warned that you might get something that sounds like “a Phase Four, positive Knight, in student government,” indicating all of the positive aspects of his program.
Besides asking students whether they are Knights or not, one of the easiest ways to identify them across campus is by what they are wearing. Knights receive “Knights Gear” which is fashionable Woodward Academy clothing. The most prized position of that being their jacket. Wearing a jacket is a status symbol on campus and something students wear with pride. So next time you’re on campus, check out all of the Knights Jackets walking around and stop and talk with a Knight.
