Clark Kellogg, best known for his role as the lead college basketball analyst for CBS Sports, served as the keynote speaker at Villa Angela-St. Joseph High School's National Honor Society induction ceremony on March 7.
Kellogg is a 1979 graduate of St. Joseph High School, which is now known as Villa Angela-St. Joseph.
The former NBA player spoke to the inductees, the rest of the student body and invited guests about character and how one builds it first through his or her thoughts, which then lead to actions that, eventually, form habits.
Kellogg stressed to the students that the character traits that they're acquiring now are likely to stay with them their entire lives.
The vice president of player relations for the NBA's Indiana Pacers discussed his own life to illustrate his point, describing how the healthy lifestyle habits he first developed as a student-athlete and professional hoops player have struck with him long after he stopped playing on the hardwood decades ago.
