Age: 18 The Six Pillars of Character: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, Citizenship



Tulare Union High School, Tulare Jt. Union High School District

Pillar: Citizenship

Coach Edwards says, "Michael was honored at the Kiwanis Club of Greater Tulare's Pursuing Victory with Honor Awards on May 13. I have watched Michael play golf since he was in the sixth grade. He has always played the sport with great integrity. Entering high school, he immediately stood out on our team for his talent and character. Since his junior year, Michael has been our number-one golfer. He leads by example whether he is on the course or in the classroom. You just can't find a better young adult so deserving of this recognition!"
