The ACE Awards (Advocates for Character and Education) is an annual award given to male and female students from each of the 35 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 an 8th or 12th grader, go on-line to http://coaches4character.com/ace-awards.html and click on the ACE Awards tab. Nominations must be submitted by January 31, 2020. For additional information, click here.
