Students Learn Work Ethic at E.L.I.T.E. Bootcamp

PEORIA - Over 250 students took part in the 2nd annual "Bootcamp" put on by the E.L.I.T.E. Program
PEORIA - A group of high school and junior high students got to learn that laziness doesn't pay off when you are on the job.

They took part in the second annual "E.L.I.T.E. Bootcamp" put on by the Peoria Park District E.L.I.T.E. Program.

The students took part in different activities and contests that were meant to teach them the value of work ethic.

E.L.I.T.E. founder Carl Cannon hopes that tonight's boot camp can help the students develop that strong work ethic that will pay off on the job and beyond.

"The idea of going to work "to work" is that you are so tired at the end of a work day, and they look for a pillow, and not the streets and alleys," he said. "We're going to keep them off the streets and out of the alleys - keep them out of harm's way."

These students are part of the Winter and Spring long E.L.I.T.E. program.

They will graduate from the program May 22nd.
