I noticed how most high school students are involved in various clubs/ activities and hold positions. However from my limited perspective, many of these positions require little more than attending a meeting or 2 (to be elected to that position). Does USNA attempt to identify quality leadership versus a whole list of positions that require little work? For example i have been told Scouting is one of the most respected organizations and becoming Eagle is a great honor. I'm a life scout and SPL (having held ASPL, OA Chapter chief, PL) myself and known very slack scouts that do little and scam their way to Eagle (to get eagle u dont have to be SPL or ASPL/ other top positions, just have to hold troop office). Also, my school's honor societies simply plan for the induction and usually hold one meeting afterward and do little beyond that. Team captains in my schools' sports teams vary a lot in leadership involvement. Some i see are held as capt as an honor/do nothing but show off while other actually lead in workouts.
