The first and second graders of Valley Elementary joined together to kick-off the Super Citizen Program. For the next 10 weeks, they’ll learn crucial lessons in civics, character, financial literacy and Our Great American Story.

They had a huge army of support this morning, including their teachers, Superintendent, School Board members and the ABC 33/40 news crew.

Students cheered as they learned about Super Citizen Program, citizenship and appreciation from the Statue of Liberty herself! The children call her Libby Liberty™ and she comes to life in an interactive program that explains her history and their calling to be Super Citizens.

At the end of the program, these same students will end their activities by honoring a local hero in their school or community.  The Liberty Learning Foundation wrapped up the day by inspiring fifth graders at the Intermediate School as well.

Pelham, Alabama has some remarkable Super Citizens on their way to greatness.
