Ace values the virtue of leadership.
Being a leader requires not only knowing how to lead, but how to serve. No greater examples are there of virtuous servant leadership than in our Lord Jesus: "For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many" (Mark 10:45).
In Scripture, leadership isn't a product of superior strength, intellect, affluence, or aesthetic. Rather, it's the product of superior service, and of exemplifying virtuous behavior in such a way it inspires it in others. As the author states: "Not domineering over those in your charge, but being examples to the flock" (1 Peter 5:3).
Ace consistently demonstrates this side of leadership in the way he unceasingly looks for opportunities to serve his peers and teachers. Ace is kind, uplifting, approachable, and is never proud nor arrogant of his position. It is his humility and servant-oriented style of leadership that attracts his peers and inspires them to uphold standards of virtue and gentility.
In the classroom, he exhibits a diligence and fortitude not common to one his age. Even when the material is difficult, Ace will endure to understand it. His attitude towards his academics motivates those around to also persevere even when it is difficult.
