Community Vitality Depends on Building and Maintaining Strong Character

Launched in 1998 with only a handful of volunteers, Character Counts Mid Shore started the Winners Walk Tall Program at Easton Elementary in the 2nd and 3rd grades.  Currently, CCMS offers the mid shore area schools positive lessons in grades Pre-K through 12, taught by trained and dedicated coaches. Character education never goes out of style.  While topics have changed due to social issues, the Six Pillars of Character remain as a solid foundation for students at all grade levels.

Character Coaches are the friendly face, the mentor, the consistent figure in students’ lives throughout the school year. Today’s children live with many big issues that provoke fear and anxiety and they tend to discuss these worries openly with their coaches. Presenting character lessons that are current and relevant make all the difference.  Character Counts provides students with the necessary tools to make the right choice.  “Life is a matter of choices, and every choice you make makes you” – John C. Maxwell.

Thanks to the continued support of the United Fund of Talbot County, Character Counts Mid Shore celebrates 20 successful years in Talbot County.
