Orono Schools Receives National Character Award

Orono Schools is honored to be one of only three U.S. recipients of the CHARACTER COUNTS! Exemplary School District Award. This honor recognizes the district’s focused and intentional character education program that has impacted the lives of Orono students for more than 20 years.

Dr. Gary Smit, CHARACTER COUNTS! Trainer and Consultant, traveled to Orono to present the award during the district’s February Professional Day. Dr. Smit recognized Orono for believing that every child–at every developmental levelthrives within a common language of character and ethics.
