All leadership TEAM members greet our Westwood Candidates every morning to make sure they are exemplifying being theBest in the West. We encourage our students to walk with pride, give eye contact when speaking, keep their chin above their shoulders, have their shirt tails tucked in, belts on, shoes tied, pants zipped, and all buttons buttoned on shirts at all times.
When our Cowboys and Cowgirls look good they feel good. When they feel good they are performing at their highest level!
