ACE Award Nominations

We are excited to announce that the 3rd Annual ACE Awards (Advocates for Character and Education) will take place in May 2015.  At this time, one male and one female student who is considered a true “unsung hero” in their school will be honored.  This award was created to recognize students who often go unnoticed for one reason or another but have accomplished great things in their community or school or have overcome great adversities in their lives. These students will be recognized at the ACE Awards Banquet for outstanding character and academic effort. 

Nominations from students, faculty, staff, parents and other community members are encouraged.  If you would like to nominate a Mauldin Middle 8th grade student who is truly an “Unsung Hero”, please complete a nomination form and return it to Mrs. Sponaugle in Guidance by Friday, January 30th. Nomination forms are available in Guidance and online at www.c4caceawards.com.
