The mission of the Society of Character is to recognize a male and female junior or senior who have exemplified outstanding character in their respective sport. Each recipient was selected by their coach/coaches on outstanding character, academic excellence, sportsmanship, and involvement in their school and the community. Forty Seven students were recognized with a plaque for this prestigious award. Induction Ceremony. Ceremonies were celebrated at each school this year. Keynote Speaker for each one was Mr. Josh Anderson, former EKU Baseball stand out and former major league player. Each year our local Rotary Club sponsors two $1000.00 scholarships for two deserving seniors, one from each school.
