Sheriff Ira Edwards Speaks to Prince Avenue Students
Clarke County Sheriff Ira Edwards, Jr. recently spoke to Prince Avenue Christian School middle and high school students as the second quarter speaker in the Distinguished Speaker Series. The Distinguished Speaker Series is part of the school’s four-pillar Christian Character Development program, designed to encourage students to strengthen their walk with Christ as they face the everyday challenges of the contemporary culture. The other three pillars of the program include the student Honor Code, discussion groups, and community service participation.
Sheriff Edwards encouraged students with an acronym based on WISDOM: Wisdom, Initiative, Service, Diligence, Obedience and Meekness. He explained that these are characteristics that should be developed by young students through their relationship with Christ. Students were given the opportunity to meet Sheriff Edwards and will be reviewing the main points of his speech in small groups in the coming week.
