The word for this week is exemplar (ex-EM-plar) Here are some examples of how this word is used:
"Rather than setting famous sports figures as their exemplars, young people would be better off to find role models in their day-to-day lives."
"President Abraham Lincoln is held in high esteem today for his exemplary leadership during America's worst political crisis."
"My dad keeps telling me that I should be an exemplar of good behavior for my younger brothers."
