First Knight… An honorary title given to those that have come before us and gave thought, ideals, philosophy and efforts to improve humanity and the world they lived in. They are forever remembered in our lives and honored in these halls.
A Knight is sworn to valor.
The Knight’s heart knows only virtue;
The Knight’s word speaks only truth;
The Knight’s courage gives hope to the despairing;
The Knight’s blade defends the helpless;
The Knight’s Shield shelters the forsaken;
The Knight’s actions brings justice;
The Knight’s image brings peace;
The Knight’s code breaks darkness.
