Recognizing the Braddock Champions of Character Award Winners


Recognizing the Braddock Champions of Character Award Winners
Late last month I was pleased to attend the annual Fairfax County Champions of Character Awards ceremony. The Champions of Character program, organized by the Fairfax County Athletic Council (FCAC), in partnership with the Department of Neighborhood and Community Services (NCS), honors athletes, coaches and parents who have demonstrated extraordinary service in the sports community, while modeling the basic traits of good character: respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship.

I’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate the Braddock winners and acknowledge their great accomplishments, which extend beyond the field and serve as an example to us all and a reminder of why Fairfax County is such a great place to live.

Patrick Halloran, now a senior at W.T. Woodson High School, is a young man of exemplary character and class. He maintains more than a 4.0 grade point average while taking an advanced course load and is a three-year letter winner in football.

Hannah Steger, a member of the spring 2012 BRYC 16 SMACK volleyball team, was nominated for her hard work and for the joy she brought her coaches and teammates. Not content to just focus on herself, during the club season Hannah also served as co-coach of a BRYC House volleyball team.

Coach and former NVYLL Commissioner, Dave Britton, helped to build the Annandale Youth Lacrosse club. More than serve as a coach though, David instilled the importance of respect, trust in one another, leadership and sportsmanship in all his athletes.

Chris Haley, a longtime coach, mentor and inspiration to the community was nominated for consistently teaching respect for sports, good character and through his commitment to youth development, and dedication to the community we call home.
