Sheridan School will host a panel discussion next week to highlight the national Schools of Character program, which this spring selected the Van Ness private school as one of 83 honorees nationwide.

The nonprofit bestows the awards to recognize schools that demonstrate a commitment to ethics, social justice and citizenship in their educational programs.

Organizers of the Sept. 13 awareness event “hope to communicate the impact of creating a culture of character” by highlighting Sheridan’s success, according to Sheril Morgan, director of the Schools of Character program. Local officials and leaders from area schools have been invited to the discussion, which will be livestreamed on Facebook; details are available at
