I am a teacher who was introduced to the School for Ethical Education (SEE) in 2003. As a language arts teacher, I am always on the look-out for ways to inspire student writing. SEE's Laws of Life Essay Contest is a fantastic motivator; students are challenged to "dig deep" to find their own literary voices while exploring ethics and good character. Student essayists invited to attend the Character Celebration are treated to an evening of inspiring speakers and are honored for their own dedication to ethical responsibility. It is important for the youth to know that qualities such as honesty, integrity, and determination are valued by their teachers, parents, and greater community. By highlighting a businessperson or community leader who exemplifies ethics in action, students see how success does not require a compromise of one’s ethics or morals. I am grateful to the School for Ethical Education for providing a challenging and inspiring opportunity to me and my students. They are a group of passionate professionals who help highlight the positive efforts and actions of others.

I came to this site for the purpose of sharing my review of this nonprofit from the unbiased perspective of an event attendee's guest.

Back in May (2014) it was my great pleasure to accompany a dear friend to The School's "Character Celebration" Awards Dinner. I refused to set any particular expectation for myself; after all it wasn't like I had any preconceived notion as to what The School's mission was or who was listed on their Board of Trustees. I was simply content attending this midweek function at the request of my friend.

Well, I was in for quite a surprise! I was genuinely shocked by each essay these children wrote. They did such a remarkable job articulating, I could no longer place "youth" in the same arena as "inexperienced". There was a brief moment during the ceremony where I felt no association to 99% of the room; the children truly shined like sparkling stars, the judges, faculty and trustees exemplified greatness and achievement, and I silently championed every parent that sat proudly next to their exemplary child.

It should be every school's objective to raise such phenomenal young adults and lead them into this world in the same manner SEE accomplishes on a daily basis! I was honored and grateful to be included for what ended up being a fantastic evening! I left that night both motivated and inspired, and continue to applaud this nonprofit just as loudly as I did for those children back in May!
