The leadership here in the Covenant of the Phoenix is fantastic...fantastic yet diverse. We have a prismatic group of leaders who are different in so many ways. Some may choose to see all our differences in leadership style as an obstacle - dividing or delaying rather than unifying and progressing. However, we see our diversity as a stepping-stone. We focus on the individuals' strengths and use their strengths in a very goal-driven way within our community. We are so fortunate to have leaders like the one being appointed to Sentinel today who have joined and given us that unique edge needed to enhance our vision for this community with their special talents, talents given willingly and passionately in helping the Covenant of the Phoenix become what it is today.
Like many of us, this individual joined our community as a gamer who wanted to be a part of something bigger than his or herself. Along the way, they forged the capacity to see beyond the game and understand that it is the relationships built within a gaming chapter that fuels this community in the long run. Eventually, that understanding led to their appointment to our leadership team and, after many years in positions of preeminence in multiple chapters and games, to Director of all CotP's server-side administrative responsibilities.
It is an honor and a privilege to announce the promotion of an individual who exemplifies the type of leader we desire in this community. This individual clearly possesses the core leadership characteristics that we look for in a Sentinel.
Xugrel, rise and be recognized today as a Sentinel of the Covenant of the Phoenix.
