Lancer Pride Attendance Expectations | What Not to Do.
The Difference of one Degree
At 211 degrees water is hot.
At 212 degrees water boils.
Boiling water creates steam.
Steam can power a train.
If one small change could change everything would you make that change?
If the difference between graduating from high school and not graduating was just one small change in your behavior would you make that change?
If the difference between a college scholarship and no scholarship at all was a one degree change in how you thought about education would you change your mindset?
If the difference between a good paying job and poverty was one simple habit would it be worth the effort to develop that habit now?
The Difference is that extra one degree.
At Granger we call that one magical degree “Lancer Pride.”
As you watch this video think about what your educational experience might be like if if you were to sho lancer pride through your attendance. Watch these good examples of what is expected of you in attendance.
