Three times a year, the Bristol Sports Hall of Fame holds a Leadership Council Breakfast. Our goal is to help the student athlete become better leaders on their respective teams. In their school, and in the community. The first session was held April 4, 2023 the Giamatti League Center. In attendance were the junior class team leaders from Bristol’s three high schools. Bristol Sports Hall of Fame inductee Mark Noon was the speaker for the event. Mark emphasized for the student-athletes to do the right thing and make good decisions. He spoke about the influence coach Gary Palladino had on his playing career and life, and that as leaders you can have a similar impact on your teammates by making good decisions, working hard and setting a good example. The students were also presented with different scenarios and a representative from each table of students were the spokesperson for their table.. The activity resulted in good interaction among the students resulting in some very interesting answers. On May19, 2023 the students will participate in the United Way Day of Caring event volunteering their time to help prepare the garden, and weed and spread bark mulch in the orchard at Indian Rock Nature Center in Bristol.
