Character Without Question 2021 recipient

Congratulations to 11th grader Luis Carbonell Torres, Character Without Question recipient from Memorial High School!  

Every year, SBISD honors students district-wide who reflect a depth of character and a caring for human beings. Students are selected for demonstrating an enduring commitment to any or all of the following character traits: honesty/integrity, responsibility/dependability, respect, perseverance/effort, courage, caring/kindness, and citizenship/civic virtue.

Luis’s counselor, Steve Nickerson, wrote, “Luis has been an amazingly hard working student. He is always polite and respectful. He has maintained academic integrity while those around him have not necessarily done so. He puts so much work into making sure he is doing everything necessary to be a successful student and Mustang. He has worked well with classmates who were struggling, helping them to improve their understanding of the material.” Luis was selected for his commitment to honesty and integrity, responsibility and dependability, and perseverance and effort.
