We remember Sandy McDonnell, who established CharacterPlus (then called PREP) in 1988. A man of great compassion, he believed that helping mold the character of young people would lead to their success as students and as responsible citizens after graduation. Sandy, you are missed by the entire CharacterPlus community.
