iLEAD Poem

At our campuses, we have historically focused on Character Counts and our iLEAD values. We typically have said our Roadrunner Character pledge to highlight the Character Counts values.

This year, we are looking to create a “Roadrunner iLEAD Pledge”. We are creating a community competition for creative individuals who wish to leave their mark on STCS for years to come.

Here is the information:

  1. Take the iLEAD values and compose a poem that could be said daily at both campuses.
  2. The poem should be no longer than the Roadrunner Character Pledge which is around a paragraph. We have added the old Roadrunner Character Pledge below for reference

“I am a Roadrunner of Character, I will be worthy of Trust

I will be Respectful and Responsible, doing what I must

I will always act with Fairness, I will show the I Care

I will be a Good Citizen and always do my share”

  1. Poems should be submitted through the following LINK
  2. All Poems are due by August 31st
  3. The poem selected will be announced September 7th.


integrity- Speaking the truth and presenting oneself genuinely with a focus on the whole person through self-discipline and determination.

Love- Valuing close relationships with others by thoughtfully demonstrating kindness, patience and a deep respect for the diversity, feelings and opinions of others.

Empathy- Imagining what it is like to be another person, in their situation, seeking understanding prior to acting.
