CIFSouthernSection10thanniversaryLOS ALAMITOS — On Monday, September 28, 2015 the California Interscholastic Federation-Southern Section (CIF-SS) is proud to hold their 12th Annual Dr. Jim Staunton Champions for Character Awards Dinner in The Grand in Long Beach.Sixteen years ago the State CIF and all 10 sections partnered to promote the 16 principals of coaching, competing and teaching called “Pursuing Victory with Honor.” Since that time we have seen school boards, superintendents, principals, athletic directors and students embrace these principles in an effort to give our athletes tools for success on the playing field and in life.

As a way to recognize those athletes that can combine a fierce competitive nature with the Six Pillars of Character; trustworthiness, responsibility, respect, fairness, caring and citizenship; the CIF-SS Ethics in Sports Committee created these awards. Athletes, coaches, administrators, officials schools and media members who demonstrate these qualities are honored at the dinner and highlighted for their achievements. Additionally, all student winners receive scholarship money for their achievements.

“It is inspiring to read the incredible accomplishments of our honorees,” stated CIF-SS Commissioner of Athletics Rob Wigod. “We are proud and honored to highlight these outstanding individuals and institutions. They personify our commitment to Victory with Honor.”
