These words describe the 12 Alice Drive Middle School students who were recently recognized with a Golden Apple Award by the Greater Sumter Chamber of Commerce for their "excellence in character traits."
The program run by the Chamber honors students by getting groups or businesses to sponsor the awards for young scholars who have integrity, perseverance and altruism and demonstrate a strong moral character.
"To commemorate the achievement, each student was presented with a certificate that contained a proclamation from the city and county of Sumter and was signed by Mayor Joseph T. McElveen and Sumter County Council Chairman James McCain," Janel Strieter, communication director for the Chamber, said.
"Whereas, students at Alice Drive Middle School have demonstrated exceptional character," McElveen's proclamation read, "and whereas, students at Alice Drive Middle School have shown pride, determination and honesty; and whereas the city and county of Sumter acknowledge these students for positively contributing to the community and society."
Each student had a short description read aloud detailing his or her character and why the student was chosen to be honored.
