On Sept. 19, 2017, thirty local students were honored at the 360AWARDS hosted at the Parkview Mirro Center. The 360AWARDS is an annual event directed by the RespectTeam, a local nonprofit that speaks to middle school and high school students about the importance of self-respect and respect of others. This year’s event raised more than $10,000 to continue the efforts of the RespectTeam in local schools. Nominators were asked to pick students who are making a positive difference in their homes, their schools and in our community. Five of the nominated students received a $1,000 scholarship at the event, courtesy of Parkview Health. All of the students received a crystal award, courtesy of Indiana Signworks and a gift courtesy of Stephen Shannon Jewelers.
Indiana's First Lady has recognized the efforts of RESPECT360 by presenting them with a grant from her Charitable Foundation. Scott Haddix and Amy Hanna were invited to a reception where they were able to meet Governor Pence and the First Lady, Karen Pence, and be presented with their grant check.
