This will be the district’s fifth annual Military Commitment Ceremony. “This has become a very special tradition for the Lakota community,” said Lakota Superintendent Matthew Miller. “Enlistment is one of the 4Es that we promote to our students as a post-graduation option, so we welcome the opportunity to celebrate students who have chosen this path.” 

This year’s keynote speaker will be Kendall Wright, a former U.S. Army Sergeant Tank Commander who is now president/CEO of a leadership development and customer experience training company called Entelechy Training. 

Visit West Chester Township’s YouTube channel on April 26 at 7 p.m. to help recognize our student honorees as a community.
