April is Blue Valley Educational Foundation Month. During this month, staff and student Sunflower Ambassadors and nominators are recognized at all Blue Valley schools. Ambassadors are nominated in essays written by their peers and selected based on how they exhibit the seven Blue Valley Virtues: compassion, courage, honesty, perseverance, respect, responsibility and self-discipline. A panel of more than 20 community leaders and educators read the finalists' essays and select the ambassadors. This is the 16th year for the character education program. Pictured are Timber Creek Elementary ambassadors and nominators - (L-R) Gail Pearson, para educator and staff nominator; Katie Morrison, fourth grader and student nominator; Charlie Graven, fourth grader and student ambassador; and Rob Watson, custodian and staff ambassador.
