She Makes Better Choices

She remembers in 2nd Grade how the word ‘Honor’ seemed out of place in a girls school. But as she grows up at McGehee, she notices how the Honor Code is influencing her thinking outside school. She realizes Honor is synonymous with Integrity and Dignity. She starts treating friends and strangers with the same measure of respect. Confronted with difficult decisions, she makes better personal choices, even when no one is watching. It’s not just McGehee’s Honor Code any more – it’s a code by which she lives her life.

The ‘real world’ doesn’t have an honor code, but I have always had my internal McGehee’s Honor Code. It’s part of my core values, and I’ve always operated out of it. It keeps you sane and steady knowing clearly what your core values are. I think I’m known for being grounded in my values. I’m a lawyer. Staying grounded in values other than making money is critical to professional competence and success.
