The Character Education Program in Bond County Unit 2 has unveiled signs that will be erected in district communities to support character education.
The first sign was recently put up in front of the high school main office. Sorento, Pocahontas and Greenville will each receive signs to erect in those communities. Attending the unveiling of the signs were Sorento Mayor Michael Mossman, Greenville Mayor Alan Gaffner, Carol Knight, president of the Unit 2 Character Education Committee, and Unit 2 administrators.
The mayor of Pocahontas was unable to attend.
Kara Harris, high school principal, told WGEL the signs display pride in the school district and communities.
She said the character education traits are printed on the signs along with each Unit 2 school mascot. There are approximately 18 signs that will be placed at each school and throughout each community in the district.
Each sign lists the character traits of citizenship, responsibility, respect, compassion and integrity.
