Champions of Character Exemplify the Heart of the District

The Baldwin-Whitehall Educational Foundation is pleased to announce the 2020 Champions of Character and Above and Beyond awardees. Awardees will be recognized at the the Distinguished Highlander Hall of Fame Gala on March 21st.

The Champions of Character Program was created in 2015 as part of the Distinguished Highlander Hall of Fame Ceremony to recognize current day advocates for children who tirelessly seek to promote the Mission and Vision of the Baldwin-Whitehall School District. The Champions of Character were selected as people who contribute to our present day student experience, making our schools a memorable, exceptional place to live, learn, and prepare for the future.
