2nd & 5th grade Students of Talladega Honor Heroes and Become Heroes Themselves!

2nd & 5th grade Students of Talladega Honor Heroes and Become Heroes Themselves!

Today, more than 750 students filled the BB Comer Memorial High School Auditorium. After finishing 10 weeks in the Super Citizen Program, they are gathered to celebrate their accomplishments and honor local heroes from the stage.

These students have learned their important roles in America’s future thanks to an immersive experience in civics, character, financial literacy and social studies. And in the closing piece of the program, Torch Teams (or “Helping Hands” for the younger students), students are applying those crucial lessons in the real world. They chose heroes who embodied the traits of amazing citizens and read essays from stage before presenting them with Authentic Liberty Replicas & Liberty Pins. They learned that “when you honor a hero, you become a hero!”

Today’s event and the donation of Super Citizen teaching kits was made possible by the Talladega County Community Alliance. With their help, we are teaching, inspiring and empowering our Next Great Americans.

“I hope that they can take away a little bit of understanding about how important it is to give back to your community,” Talladega County Farmers Federation Board Member Justin Lackey says. “If they have the opportunity to sit down and watch it one time, you will see a difference. They will see what kind of impact it’s making to our kids, to our future generation.”
