Warrior Servant Leadership Program
The Warrior Servant Leadership Program is more than an opportunity for students to serve, but an attitude and commitment for the community of administrative staff, teachers, support staff, and students of Metrolina to follow the commands of the scripture and the model of Christ seen in Matthew 20:26-28. The WSL Program is a school wide pledge to create more opportunities for service and leadership in an effort to cultivate a lifestyle of service. The WSL Program is an investment of the heart with a single minded purpose to serve, which is part of our Biblical responsibilities as we care for others and our community.
