Character Awards
The Character Award recognizes outstanding individuals who have worked hard to live a life of good character and serve as a role model for others. These awards will bring together character leaders in education, sports, workplaces and communities as a whole. We will be celebrating prominent advocates from our past as well as today’s influential leaders.
