Today, October 14th, 300 students from Ariton and George W. Long Elementary heard the powerful message of freedom and started their journey to Super Citizenship. The Super Citizen Program kicked off today at the George W. Long High School Gymnasium and the students were eagerly awaiting a big surprise as the Next Great Americans Tour bus pulled up.

They could not believe their eyes when Libby Liberty™, all the way from New York Harbor, stepped off her pedestal and onto the stage. She brought history to life, led them in song and introduced them to the 10-week Super Citizen Program they’ll begin when her tour bus rolls away.

The Liberty Learning Foundation is thrilled to help these two schools implement crucial lessons in civics, social studies, character, financial literacy and career development into the classroom before we return for graduation.

Many local heroes came to support the students and in about 10 weeks, the students will graduate from the Super Citizen Program, take the Super Citizen Oath and honor individuals in their community who they believe to be “Super Citizens.”

As Libby Liberty™ pulled away in her bus, she was filled with hope and excitement for the students of Ariton and George W. Long as they embark on this wonderful journey to becoming “Super Citizens.”
