DAYTON — The Better Business Bureau’s Center for Business and Consumer Ethics, Inc. announces the winners of its Students of Integrity awards program, sponsored by Dayton Dental Collaborative and Reynolds and Reynolds.
This is the 14th year your BBB has recognized Miami Valley high school seniors who exemplify strong ethics and integrity. The award includes a $1,000 college scholarship. The Students of Integrity will be honored Tuesday, May 10 at your Better Business Bureau’s Eclipse Integrity Awards hosted at the David H. Ponitz Sinclair Center.
A panel of independent judges selected these five students from the 73 applications. All high schools in your BBB’s service area received invitations to nominate two outstanding students from their senior classes.
Madison Fecher of Beavercreek High Schools in receiving the Shine Award from Beavercreek High School for being a character and moral model, Madison Fecher has made quite an impact on her classmates and community. She is a proud member of the high school soccer team, Beavercreek Youth Softball Association, Pre-Med Club, National Honor Society, All-Star Dance Team and was the Link Crew leading freshman.
Fecher has selflessly volunteered time to the Peer Helping program working with special education classes, as well as PALS and Spectrum Club assisting students with and without special needs enhance social skills, conflict resolution, trust competences and relationship building talents. In working with those with cognitive impairments, Madison plans to attend The Ohio State University to study neuroscience.
CBCE in partnership with your BBB believes identifying and honoring young people for strong integrity and character is vital to the organizations’ missions of promoting ethics in the marketplace. Like the Eclipse Integrity Awards, the Students of Integrity highlight outstanding ethics. In bringing young adults to the forefront, both organizations are closing the loop on what it takes to be a successful and contributing community leader whether business, nonprofit or individual.
BBB President & CEO John North said, “These students have outstanding resumes. They’ve excelled academically, within their extra-curricular activities and in serving their communities. It’s exciting to consider what their future holds. Our world will be a better place with them in it. Better Business Bureau is thrilled to honor them and watch them be the best they can be in the future.”
In addition to the student awards, the BBB will also be presenting its Torch Award to Kettering Health Network and its Community Honor to University of Dayton.
