OUR MISSION is to strengthen our communities by promoting excellence in character for all of our citizens. Each month, we provide information to individuals, organizations, businesses, churches, schools, and agencies which focus on one of 49 Character Traits. These traits are identified by Character First! Institute, of which the Prattville-Autauga Character Coalition is a member, as a good starting point. In this way, all interested parties are focused on the same character trait in Prattville and Autauga County.
The list is not a definitive list of good character qualities, yet they have a far-reaching and practical impact on our lives when balanced with one another. Each trait has a short definition, which allows us brief insight into that particular quality.
"One isn't necessarily born with Courage, but one is born with potential. Without Courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency."
Maya Angelou, poetess (1928- )
