John Matlock of Arlington was one of 67 students who attended the Four Star Leadership with General Tommy Franks leadership program, which took place July 11-16 in Oklahoma.
The week-long program for the top high-school students from around the world to learn leadership techniques and skills from frontrunners and influential leaders in various fields. Program curriculum is designed around the four core principles that led retired U.S. Army Gen. Tommy Franks through his 38-year military career: character, common vision, communication and caring.
“We are honored to assist the world’s brightest high-school students with leadership capabilities and confidence as they make important steps toward their collegiate careers – just the first step in a long journey of future triumphs for these leaders of tomorrow,” Franks said.
