2016-17 ACE Awards
The ACE (Advocates for Character and Education) Awards is an annual end of the school year banquet in which 70 male and female character and education award winners from all 35 Greenville County middle and high schools are recognized and honored. The selection process, established by Greenville County counselors, focuses on identifying and selecting at risk students as award winners. These students quite often are true “Unsung Heroes” who are comprised of students who have overcome tremendous odds to achieve wonderful things in their churches, schools, homes, or communities but have not been recognized for doing so.
