News & Notes
Men Who Read: Master Barber Panel
BMS welcomed master barbers from across the upstate to our January Men Who Read, Dress for Success session. The master barbers served on a panel and discussed how reading has
impacted their lives and careers. They also shared with participants the importance of appearance, hygiene, and first impressions. Lastly, several the young men received a fresh haircut for the New Year.
Thank you to the barbers and community partners who invested in our scholars. Each of you are evidence of the magic that happens when community members give back!
Stay tuned to see and hear more about today’s event (locally & nationally) in the coming days & weeks.
If you would like to be a featured speaker for a session or know of a great candidate, please contact Mr. Qualls at (864)355-2779 or email@example.com.

ACE Awards Nominations Now Open!
The ACE Awards (Advocates for Character and Education) was created by Greg Blatt, Founder and Executive Director of Coaches 4 Character. It is an annual award given to 68 male and female students from each of the 34 Greenville County middle and high schools. This award is designed to honor true “unsung heroes” who all too often are not recognized for their accomplishments. The selection process, established by Greenville County school counselors, focuses on identifying and selecting students who often go unnoticed for one reason or another, but have accomplished great things in their community, church or school.
If you would like to nominate a Greenville County 8th or 12th grader, please complete and submit this nomination form or go on-line to www.c4caceawards.com/ace-awards.html. All nominations must be submitted by January 31, 2017. An ACE Awards Advisory Committee at each school will choose finalists from among those nominated to complete an application for the ACE Award. One male and one female will be chosen from each middle and high school in Greenville County. All ACE award recipients will be recognized at the ACE Awards ceremony in the spring.
Middle School 'Perfect Attendance' Criteria
From Our District Office: The definition of an absence at a Greenville County Middle School is missing more than one-half of any singular class period for which a student is enrolled, or multiple class periods for which a student is enrolled, during a school day. Absence in any part of the school day for a minimum of more than one-half class period, even if the student was present for all portions of that same school day, by definition excludes a student from being determined to have Perfect Attendance.
