Coaches for Character, a non-profit organization whose mission is to teach at-risk youth the value of education and character development, will hold its 4th annual banquet this year. It will honor one male and one female from each high school 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 learning academics despite various obstacles. Anyone can nominate a student: faculty and staff, parents, community members, and students. Nomination forms are available online at www.coaches4character.com/ace-awards or in the school office. All nominations need to be submitted to Ms. Guiliano, the school counselor, by January 31st, 2017.

The yearbook staff of Travelers Rest High School received the All-State evaluation rating on their 2015-2016 yearbook. Carolyn Sutton, first-year advisor, led them to the highest award. She is the only first-year advisor to win this honor in South Carolina, and just six yearbooks in the state received this rating. The yearbook earned All-State on all six grading sections of the evaluation. They nicely tied together their theme of FocUS, as commented by the judges.
This year, the yearbook staff continues to strive for excellence and celebrate last year's achievement. This is Sutton’s second year as a teacher at TRHS, and she has already accomplished much. Sutton says the team worked hard on coverage (including many people in the yearbook) and incorporating the theme. "The award shows how hard my students work; I have to give credit to the editors and staff," Sutton says. She wanted to give Luke Samples, Jostens representative, credit as well. The 2016-2017 yearbook staff is already working hard on the next yearbook and will keep striving for greatness.

Alive at 25 is an early intervention program developed by the National Safety Council to prevent traffic violations, collisions, and fatalities. It is a 4 ½ hour defensive driving course that addresses the dangers of speeding, failure to use seatbelts, using cell phones while driving, eating while driving, driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs, and more. It focuses on the behaviors that young drivers exhibit behind the wheel, and allows the student to recognize the consequences of those actions. Completion of the program is required for any student that parks on campus.
