2016 Awards Program

September 29, 2016

 

Baltimore, MD — The Maryland Center for Character Education at Stevenson University (MCCE@SU) is dedicated to making an ethical difference in the lives of individuals and the entire community through education. The Center encourages teachers and administrators, in public and private schools to teach, model, and reinforce moral values and ethical behavior.


On Thursday, September 29th the Maryland Center for Character Education at Stevenson University held their annual Awards Luncheon and Program at Stevenson University, Owings Mills Campus, Rockland Center.


In partnership with the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) and CHARACTER.ORG, the Maryland Center for Character Education at Stevenson University (MCCE@SU) honored and awarded 64 schools from throughout Maryland with a School of the Year Award and banner for promoting character education within their schools and communities.. The awards program recognizes schools or districts that demonstrate an outstanding character education initiative yielding positive results in student behavior, school climate, and academic performance. Schools are selected by their county Superintendent and/or their Character Education Coordinator.

 

We were proud to announce that Prince George’s County Public Schools received the MCCE@SU 2016 School System Award.


This year we also recognized and honored Maryland schools that received a National School of Character (NSOC) Award, a State School of Character (SSOC) Award, an Honorable Mention School of Character, and an Emerging School of Character certificate from CHARACTER.ORG.
