Advisory Board

The Character Counts! Advisory Council is comprised of dedicated community and agency people. They work towards the mission of partnering with the people of Queen Anne's County to support and embrace character development in all aspects of our lives. 

Advisory Council meetings are held every third Wednesday of the month at 8:30am at the Department of Community Services in Centreville. 

All are welcome to attend! 

We are also looking for people in the community to become a council member.


Please contact us for more information. 

Wayne Humphries' Favorite Pillar of Character: 


He believes that it is a pillar that most people want to avoid the most. It needs to be a reminder to others that we should be RESPONSIBLE for ourselves, others, and the community. 

Susan Coppage's Favorite Pillar of Character: 


She believes that we cannot go wrong if we live our life treating others as we want to be treated: GOLDEN RULE.

Kelly Huber
Character Counts! Coach Specialist

Favorite Pillar of Character: 


She believes that in order to truly understand and adopt all Six Pillars of Character into your daily practices and life, you must first CARE.

Kelly Huber joined the Character Counts! program in November 2016 as the new Character Counts! Coach Specialist. She is in charge of recruiting coaches from the residents of Queen Anne's County, community organizations and local businesses as well as school parents and staff.  She will  train those individuals and prepare them to deliver the CC! message to the students in our schools. She will be the liason between the schools and the coaches and assist the coaches in their weekly lesson as  part of the CC! team.

Kelly moved to Queen Anne's 11 years ago and currently lives in Grasonville. She has twin boys that attend Grasonville Elementary School where she has been very involved as a volunteer  for the last 5 years. Prior to having kids, Kelly was a recruiter in the Washington DC/Baltimore area for 10 years. 

Kelly is a Character Counts! coach for several classes again this year. It is a program that she feels passionate about and loves sharing her lessons.
