"The Character Counts Show"
"The Character Counts Show" is an elementary school by assembly presenter Obediah Thomas. This CHARACTER COUNTS! Pillars of Character assembly uses humor, music, and storytelling to educate and motivate elementary school students about trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, citizenship and bullying. This show aligns well with a school’s Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) program.
"CHARACTER COUNTS!" and "The Six Pillars of Character" are registered trademarks of Josephson Institute.
Obediah is a very gifted performer! The students were so engaged and the format of the assembly helped them to remember the Pillars of Character better than any Guidance lesson I have done with students. If you need any recommendations to other schools, I would be happy to be a reference.

A very, very, very, very great show.

Admittedly, I was a little nervous of how my 7th and 8th grade students would receive your performance (I knew my 5th and 6th would love it). To my surprise, the 7th and 8th grade loved it! I got great feedback from all in attendance.

I just wanted to say thank you again for the wonderful assembly. I was very impressed with how your character message fit perfectly with our school-wide character goals and was equally impressed with the high level of engagement all the students showed during the assembly.
