MEASURED BY CHARACTER

On Wednesday, students attended Measured By Character. It is a program that travels locally to different schools to speak about bullying and self-worth. Wade White, the father of the young boy who inspired this program, touched on making sure everyone feels important and that every child knows their life matters. During the program a special message was given by our own Riley Sprowl. Riley continues to inspire us all with his touching message. "Measured by Character is dedicated to empowering our youth by encouraging them to recognize that their lives have purpose and meaning." - Wade White
