ACE Award Nominations

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 74 male and female students from each of the 36 Greenville County middle and high schools.  It will honor one male and one female from each middle and high school in grades 8 and 12 who are considered the true “unsung heroes” in their schools. These are students who might go unnoticed for one reason or another, students who are role models, who work hard and give their best effort, students who are all too often not recognized for their accomplishments, or students who demonstrate unusual commitment to academics despite various obstacles. The award ceremony will be organized and hosted by Coaches 4 Character and Greenville county school counselors. Anyone can nominate a student: faculty and staff, parents, community members, and students. Nominations open December 7, 2020 and close February 8, 2021.

Parent Backpack works on any device and is mobile friendly.   Parents are reminded that once they have created their online Parent Backpack account, they must link their students using their Student ID (found on their progress report, report card, or class schedule).  After this process is complete, parents must then visit their child’s school and present their government issued photo ID in order for the school to approve their pending request.
Parents will find Parent Backpack on the GCS Portal Page GCS portal logo
