The Door County Civility Project will be honored by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction Thursday for making a positive impact on local schools. The volunteer initiative is one of three organizations and two individuals earning a DPI Friends of Education after beginning a program in 2015 entitled “Speak Your Peace” at Southern Door High School to promote a culture of civility among students. Southern Door Superintendent Patti Vickman says she is proud of the work the Door County Civility Project has done for their district.
The Door County Civility Project’s efforts have resulted in class projects and musical performances based on the lessons learned from the in-school program at Southern Door.
