    The Character in Education program at North Harrison High School recently came into question when a number of tickets fir the prize drawing were found having been taken out of it. Interim Supt. Randy Barrett was notified, and they were returned to the drum containing the rest of the tickets. Angela Beaver shared her concerns at Thursday’s meeting of the North Harrison Board of School Trustees about the present state of the program, since the tickets were discovered.
    Several parents have had concerns about the program, from whether or not it will continue, to whether or not the tickets have been distributed fairly to the students in the first place.
    Tickets are given for such things as being on the honor roll, not being absent or tardy, as well as other positive behaviors. The tickets then go into a drum in the high school office. A number of prizes are donated by merchants in the community, with the biggest prize of all a new Ford Focus auto donated by Heritage Ford in Corydon, Indiana.
    “I’m here tonight because I want to know how (this issue) will be addressed,” Beaver said. “Students have expressed concerns that it isn’t run fairly. It could be a wonderful program. (The students) don’t believe they have a chance to win.”
