Congrats to students of character

All of Muskogee should be proud of the accomplishments of the students and staff of Sadler Arts Academy and Hilldale Middle School.

Each school recently was selected a National School of Character by the Character Education Partnership.

This recognition is a tribute to the dedication of staff to teach character traits to our students.

It is congratulations for the key figures in character education in our city.

It is a pat on the back to the two school districts’ administrations for their support of the character program.

It will pay off down the road for students. They will learn how to be better students through the emphasis on character.

It will pay off for our community, too.

Students who learn character traits in their formative years will make better people for decades after their education ends. Better citizens create a better community.

But mostly, these announcements are acknowledgment for the accomplishments of our students.

They proved they not only understand the character principles, but are willing to live their lives by those principles.

The students at both schools did our city proud.

They showed everyone who is willing to pay attention that we have quality youth in this city.

We should all be proud of our students and learn to follow their examples.
