Stevenson University, Owings
The Maryland Center for Character Education at Stevenson
University (MCCE@SU) is planning the 2015 Awards Conference to honor
schools throughout MD who have instituted, developed, and are continuing
comprehensive character education initiatives in their school communities.
It is a goal of MCCE@SU to promote Character Education throughout the
state of Maryland. This year we are encouraging every school throughout
the state that has developed a comprehensive character education program
to apply for this prestigious award. Our goal is to encourage all schools
that have a character education program to apply for recognition and
a MCCE@SU School of the Year award.
The recognized schools in 2015 will receive a specially
designed School of the Year Character Education banner which can be
displayed proudly along with a certificate of recognition from the Maryland
Center for Character Education at Stevenson University. These recognized
schools will be honored for their leadership at the 2015 MCCE@SU Awards
Conference on October 8th. However, it should be noted that the Maryland
Center for Character Education and Stevenson University strongly believes
that the most important reward is the satisfaction of observing the
strengthening of character in Maryland’s youth.
