How the Search Began:
What was once just an idea in the mind of a participant in the local Academy for Community Leadership (ACL) program has grown into a vital, active committee of concerned local citizens.
As a result of the project’s challenge, several area residents came together in the spring of 1992 to form the Committee. The Committee was formed for the purpose of raising the level of integrity consciousness in our community. As noted in our Mission Statement, it is our aim to promote and recognize integrity in the business community as well as the personal lives of area residents. We believe values must not only be taught to our children, but integrity must be demonstrated by those people with whom they have contact every day.
The Search Continues:
In an effort to reach into all facets of the community, the Committee has established a program whereby residents of Delaware County may nominate an individual whose life continuously shows strong evidence of integrity. Based on these nominations, several citizens will be awarded plaques at a reception each year.
The Committee for Integrity Enhancement has been recognized as exempt from federal taxes under Section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
