PACE honors local student leaders

Pace Giving Award To Junior Medical Lake

SPOKANE, Wash.– A local group found a creative way to honor student leaders who remind people about the importance of good character.

Pace Award Family Standing Outside HouseEach year Partners Advancing Character Education (PACE) holds awards ceremonies where they announce awards for students with exceptional character. Partnering schools across Spokane County chose one person for the honor. COVID-19 restrictions prevented PACE from holding their regular events, so they brought the celebration to the students.

The PACE crew showed up at Mayah Eberhardt’s house on Thursday. She said she was honored to receive the recognition. Eberhardt  hopes to continue making a difference in her upcoming senior year. She also challenged others to be the change they want to see.

“There’s a lot going on right now and I feel like more people need to speak up for what’s right and what’s wrong and be more positive instead of looking at things in a negative way,” Eberhardt said.
