Approximately 200 students from the Logan County and Russellville Independent school districts took part in the third annual CharacterWorks summer kickoff even on Saturday, Aug. 9, at the new Logan County Public Library.
This year’s event had music from Trey Farlee, free Italian ice and other food, a water slide and other games and activities.
It was the first of two such events that are planned for this school year.
“We want to have two per year, one in winter and one in summer,” said Lisa White, the director of Logan County CharacterWorks. “We are going to have a ceremony and recognize these kids of character. We will be working with the school districts to provide acknowledgement for those students that deserve it.”
Each month White sends out a CharacterWorks newsletter about the program. If you would like to be added to the email list, you can request it by emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
CharacterWorks purpose is to provide a unified focus on supporting and recognizing our young leaders of tomorrow. Through a strong mission, our youth will benefit because they will realize that having strong character is so important to one’s success that our entire county is behind CharacterWorks.
