‘Character Does Matter’ Comes to Hopkins County

travis manion found 300MADISONVILLE, Ky. (8/5/13) – The Travis Manion Foundation is creating and inspiring the next generation of future leaders.
 
Character Does Matter empowers veterans and families of the fallen to deliver dynamic, inspiring presentations to emerging leaders across the nation. The program engages the next generation of leaders to serve, directly impacting their local communities, while carrying on the legacies of our nation’s Fallen Heroes.
 
Hopkins County will be hosting a series of Character Does Matter presentations August 27th through 29th in participating elementary, middle and high schools, as well as at the YMCA. Albie Masland, Madisonville’s Character Ambassador, will be delivering the “If Not Me, Then Who…” message to over one thousand Hopkins County students during his eight presentations while visiting our area. Albie will share his relatable story and also share the story of a local Fallen Hero to inspire our young people to demonstrate character by exhibiting courage, integrity, leadership and service in their everyday lives.
 
People can learn more and watch a short video at www.travismanion.org/character-does-matterKellyForbes.
 
Local 9/11 Heroes Run Race Director Kelly Forbes feels Character Does Matter is a great addition to the event taking place on Saturday, September 7th. The presentations are an additional opportunity for the community, especially our youth, to learn about the Travis Manion Foundation and the sacrifices made by the incredible American Heroes from the last decade.
 
“The idea is simple. It’s about adopting the motto of, ‘If Not Me, Then Who…’ and applying it into your daily life,” TMF President Ryan Manion Borek said. “It’s about remembering the sacrifices of all of the men and women who have given their lives for this country. It’s about honoring our Fallen Heroes through service right here at home.” Ryan’s brother 1st Lt. (USMC) Travis Manion was killed in Iraq in 2007.
 
Hopkins County Schools participating in the Character Does Matter program include Pride Elementary, South Hopkins Middle, Jesse Stuart Elementary, West Broadway Elementary, Madisonville North Hopkins High (junior and senior classes) and West Hopkins. The Hopkins County Family YMCA will be hosting a presentation open to the public on Wednesday, August 28 at 9:30 AM. Albie will give a special presentation for children in grades 1st through 6th explaining what a Hero is and challenging them to use good character in the classroom, on the playground and at home.
 
The following is the schedule for this event(s)…
