Six Bluff Park Elementary students were named Finely Award Character Education nominees this year.
Each year, Hoover honors Coach Bob Finley, a former Athletic Director at Berry High School who exemplified great character. A Hoover employee and a senior student from each Hoover high school are selected as Finley award recipients for best displaying characteristics of Coach Finley. Each Hoover school also selects students who show good character by selecting Character Education nominees. Teachers and staff select nominees for each grade level in elementary school.
