Students learn about the fundamentals of character


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

Students from All-Saints Catholic School receive their awards Tuesday night during the Character Counts! Super Celebration at Roswell High School that honored Chaves County students for the art, poetry and essays they created to illustrate the importance of the six pillars of character. The event is part of Character Counts! Week, which is commemorated nationally. About 51 local students have been honored this year from public and private schools and the National Guard Youth Challenge Academy. The medals given to students this year included an inscription on the back that read “In loving memory of Judge Alvin Jones — The Year of the Bow Tie,” in tribute to the man who once was a co-director of the organization and remained involved throughout his life.
