Character Without Question Awards

Forty-seven exemplary students in kindergarten through 12th grade were honored as Character Without Question Award recipients during a public celebration held on Feb. 23 at Northbrook High School.

The theme of this year’s awards program was “Dream a Dream,” which is based on an award-winning book titled “Dream: A Tale of Wonder, Wisdom and Wishes,” by Susan Bosak. Student award winners received copies of this book.

The ceremony was held during the Spring Branch ISD Board of Trustees monthly meeting. Character Without Question Awards are given to students who exhibit an outstanding character, make positive decisions and are responsible citizens.

Student recipients are selected through a nomination and interview process. SBISD educators and campus interview teams review candidates who exemplify character traits of honesty, responsibility, respect, perseverance, courage, kindness and citizenship. 

The SBISD Community Relations Department’s Pat Waldrop coordinated special event preparations. Awards ceremony emcee was Community Relations Officer Linda Buchman.

Program support and underwriting were provided by Wells Fargo Bank, Spring Branch Education Foundation (SBEF), Behind the Scenes (Jim Koehn), Blue Willow Books (Valerie Koehler) and Lion Market Catering (Culinary Arts).

Communications and Community Relations staff members Paul Bryant and Amy Byrom provided graphic design and additional event support.
