Cornett completes tour of Marine educators’ workshop


Somerset —

The camp was designed to make individuals in the educational field better at leading their faculties and students. What Cornett took away from the “amazing experience” will surely pay dividends for Somerset High School down the road, and something he’d encourage other members of his staff to do as well.
“A lot (the aspects) of leadership that they talk about is being a team,” said Cornett. “You will live as a team, train as a team, eat and sleep as a team. ‘I’ and ‘me’ will no longer be part of your vocabulary. That stuck out with me a lot.
“People in leadership are expected to make a lot of decisions. We have a lot of people who support us as a team,” he added. “I told my staff that it was hard to put into words the impact this made on me. ... I didn’t know what to expect going in ... (but) it was a great experience.”
