by Tom McNamara | Oct 01, 2012

Dr. Gregg Amore, associate dean of students for student development, will be featured on an episode of Tempo InDepth, a Lehigh Valley news magazine broadcasted on PBS39, WLVT.

The episode, Kids and Self Esteem, shows what it takes to teach a young person to have a positive self-image. Most people will agree that teens who lack self-esteem often end up in trouble. Tempo InDepth will sit down with one young woman overcoming depression and learn about character education programs improving kids' self-esteem both inside and outside of school.

Amore was interviewed about how DeSales University is a state sponsor and judge for the State and National Schools of Character (SSOC/NSOC) program administered by the Character Education Partnership (CEP) in Washington, D.C.

The SSOC/NSOC programs award elementary, middle, and high schools for having reached a standard of excellence in character development within their states. Awards are selected by state sponsors and given to schools and districts that have developed long-term character education initiatives that successfully implement CEP’s Eleven Principles of Effective Character Education. Schools designated as a State School of Character are fowarded to CEP for consideration at the national level.

The "Kids and Self Esteem" episode of Tempo InDepth will run on Tuesday, October 2,  at 8:00 & 8:30 p.m.,  Friday, October 5 at 7:00 & 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, October 7 at 11:30 a.m.
