The Assistant Superintendent of Nicholas County Schools in West Virginia is named the state's Character Educator of the Year.
Damon Hanshaw received the Paul J. Morris Character Educator of the Year Award Wednesday morning during the Board of Education monthly meeting in Charleston.
“We are so proud to honor both Mr. Hanshaw and Mr. Morris,” said Wade Linger, West Virginia Board of Education president. “We know that building a student’s character is as important as building their mind. Role models like Mr. Hanshaw make that possible.”
According to a release from the West Virginia Department of Education, Hanshaw was honored for initiating a massive and comprehensive professional development of all professionals, service employees and central office staff to implement a countywide character education initiative in Nicholas County following research of multiple programs. This initiative addresses individuality and integration with the total school environment.
The Paul J. Morris Character Educator of the Year Award is named after former West Virginia Board of Education member Paul Morris, who received the first Character Educator of the Year Award in 2003. Morris, who died in 2005, served on the state board for nearly a quarter of a century.
