As part of the ceremony, the boys will share goals of the Boys’ Group and highlight the importance of boys becoming good men.
Members will recite the “Pledge of a Good Young Man,” which was developed by members of the Boys’ Group and club sponsor Brad Dedman.
Among the items listed in the pledge are promises to follow the rules of society, home and school; be respectful of women, the elderly, the weak, private property and nature; to assist those in need of help; and refrain from bad language, drugs, alcohol, tobacco and fighting.
The boys will sign the document with the promise “to follow this pledge to the best of my ability."
Brad Dedman, MLES guidance counselor, said the goal of the pledge is to remind the boys that “Just being a certain age doesn’t make you a man. Being a good man requires that you act in a way that earns the title of being a good man. Our country, our communities and our families need good men.”The boys’ parents and families have been invited to attend the pledge signing ceremony. The school is located at 3500 Hayden Road.
