Character award nominations being accepted

The Julie R. Macier Character award was established in 1995. It is named after a student from the Haddonfield Memorial High School class of 1995, who died on Oct. 7, 1994 after a long and courageous battle with leukemia.

The award is co-sponsored by the Board of Education and the PTA.

An eighth-grade student from Haddonfield Middle School and a senior from Haddonfield Memorial High School will be chosen to receive the Julie R. Macier Character Award.

The nominees for this award should be candidates that have exhibited those wonderful character traits that Julie exemplified in her own life.

These include courage, faith, honesty, integrity, responsibility, sense of humor, compassion, perseverance, friendship, trustworthiness, patience and respect.

Nominations for this distinguished award may be submitted by school administrators, teachers, staff members or students.

In addition, we strongly encourage the Board of Education, PTA and Haddonfield residents to submit nominations.

Nomination forms are available in the main office of the high school and the middle school and also at the front desk at the Haddonfield Public Library.

The deadline for entries is April 15.

Please join the BOE and the PTA in selecting two worthy students for this award named in memory of someone who was such a positive role model and inspiration.
