Medlin Middle School recently won a Promising Practice award at the National Forum of Character Education for its work on seventh-grade empathy education projects.

The Promising Practice award, given by Character.org, is annually bestowed on schools that demonstrate creative ways to include character-based education in academic environments. Award-winners are selected for showcasing best practices that have a positive impact on others.

At Medlin, seventh-grade students researched areas in their school or community in need of empathy, then created and documented their own empathy projects to inspire others to do the same. Medlin was just one of five Texas schools to receive a Promising Practice award this year.

Medlin’s award follows the recent character award of one of its neighboring Trophy Club schools, Beck Elementary School, which was recently named a National School of Character by the same organization.
