ALABASTER - It's been said that character is who you are when no one is looking. With that in mind, in mid-April, dozens of students across Shelby County who exhibit good character were celebrated in high fashion at American Village in Montevallo. 

Hosted by the Children's Policy Council of Shelby County, the annual Character in Action Awards honored the following students from Alabaster City Schools: 

Aimee Moody (Creek View Elementary)
Grady Cheek (Meadow View Elementary)
Daney Mathers (Thompson Intermediate School)
Noah Humphreys (Thompson Middle School)
Josh Smith (Thompson High School)

The program included a welcome by Shelby County District Attorney Matt Casey, a keynote address by American Village's Val Crofts, and closing remarks by Shelby County Judge Erin Welborn. ACS Superintendent Dr. Wayne Vickers joined ACS principals and the parents of honorees for the two-hour banquet. Character in Action honorees get nominated through a rigorous selection process. This award represents one of the highest honors given to students in Shelby County each year. See more photos and full coverage from the Shelby County Reporter.
