On Thursday, April 26, CSArch received the Business Leadership Award from the Academy for Character Education at The Sage Colleges at the 15th annual banquet in Troy, New York. Executive Principal Daniel Woodside accepted the award on behalf of the firm, who was nominated by Dr. Marie Wiles, Superintendent at Guilderland Central School District.

The Champions of Character Awards program honors students, educators, civic organizations, community leaders, and businesses who have demonstrated leadership and dedication to fostering positive character development in our schools and communities.
