SEF to manage Bastrop County Character Education program

Post date: Jan 4, 2018

Smithville Education Foundation has taken over management of the Bastrop County Character Education program. The program didn't fit well in the mission of the Bastrop Chamber of Commerce and Elgin Chamber of Commerce but fits right in with ours - helping our teachers inspire greatness in our students.

BCCE includes the popular Character Trait of the Month posters, which are distributed throughout the schools and the communities. The poster program will allow BCCE to give a scholarship to a student at each of our public high schools, starting in May 2018.

We've got lots of great plans for the future. We are seeking input from area school staff and high school to increase the impact to younger students. We've updated the traits and their definitions, and more. Stay tuned!
