Provident-Salierno Foundation Awards
The Saliernos have been longtime supporters of the CHARACTER COUNTS! Program, having participated in the initial community trainings nearly 20 years ago and having contributed to the construction of the Pillar Square monument in Mooney Grove Park. On October 29, the CHARACTER COUNTS! Office recognized 38 students at the Provident-Salierno Family Foundation Awards - 14 winners and 24 finalists.
CHARACTER COUNTS! Coordinator Kelley Petty reports that 130 Tulare County schools nominated a total of 6,853 students this year. "Eighteen years ago, we counted just over 100 student nominations in our first CHARACTER COUNTS! Week Celebration," says Mrs. Petty.
"Tulare County is unique in the nation to have long-standing media and charitable foundation partnerships celebrating Kids of Character," says Tulare County Superintendent of Schools Jim Vidak. "We truly appreciate the Times Delta and the Saliernos for recognizing the value in promoting good character to build healthy communities."
