Character Without Question Awards

Forty-six exemplary students in kindergarten through 12th grade were honored on Feb. 24 as Character Without Question Award recipients in a public ceremony held at Northbrook High School. This year’s awards presentation, presented under the theme “Sometimes It Just Takes . . . One,” was conducted during the regular monthly meeting of the Spring Branch ISD Board of Trustees.

The Character Without Question Award is an SBISD specific honor given annually to students who have outstanding character, make positive decisions and are responsible citizens. Students are selected through a directed nomination and interview process. SBISD educators and campus interview teams look for nominees who exemplify seven character traits: honesty, responsibility, respect, perseverance, courage, kindness and citizenship.

SBISD Community Relations Department staff members Pat Waldrop, Paul Bryant and Amy Byrom coordinated special event preparations.
