Waynesboro, VA — The Fishburne Military School Corps of Cadets were delighted Wednesday morning when guest speaker Mr. Benjamin C. Bowman, Jr., Chief Operating Officer for Worth Higgins & Associates, made a presentation regarding morals and ethics during the weekly Corps assembly in Lawton Chapel.

Mr. Bowman is a board member for the Junior Achievement program of Central Virginia and volunteers as a speaker for the Junior Achievement Ethics Speaking Program. He spoke about certain situations when someone may need to apply morals and ethics to the workplace.

During his talk, one of the speaking techniques Mr. Bowman used was rapping to show that you shouldn’t judge people by the way they look. Before the end, he left the cadets with three statements: have an attitude of servitude; believe in the organization’s mission; and, never become satisfied.

Fishburne Military School is the oldest and smallest of all military schools for boys in Virginia. Its college-prep curriculum is built on the structure of an Army JROTC program. FMS has been designated as a JROTC Honor Unit with Distinction and may nominate qualified candidates to the United States Service Academies. Fishburne hosts one of only four Summer JROTC programs in the nation that is accredited by US Army Cadet Command.
