Bellefontaine High School student-athletes are learning leadership skills that will benefit them on and off the field.

Longtime Bellefontaine Police Chief Brandon Standley kicked off the first session of the MVP lecture series this week in the BHS Distance Learning Center.

Chief Standley presented the idea to Bellefontaine Athletic Director Matt Comstock last month.

Each one-hour lecture is an informal discussion led by Standley.

His vision is to improve the mental side of sports (and life) for each attendee.

Standley has five goals – have fun, learn something, support each other, don’t be distracted, and trust one another.

Standley said he was inspired to help because he cares about each student and our community.

The first session was titled “Developing a Winning Attitude.”

The chief said attitude is where success in life starts.

He then discussed how self-image is important.

He encouraged each student-athlete to be humble and celebrate others, especially their teammates.

Standley then asked each attendee to have an unquestionable work ethic and shine when no one is watching.

He said success also depends on unquestionable integrity.

Approximately 40 BHS sophomores and juniors were chosen by their coaches to attend the leadership series.

The lecture series will continue throughout the second semester.

Here are the remaining topics:

“Never Be Satisfied”

“Representing Yourself”

“How to be Elite in Life”

“Dangers of the Victim Mindset”

Standley graduated from BHS in 1990.

He’s been with the Bellefontaine Police Department for 27 years, including the last 10 years as chief.
