Barbour County & Eufaula Primary 2nd Grade Students Celebrate Becoming Super Citizens

Barbour County & Eufaula Primary 2nd Grade Students Celebrate Becoming Super Citizens

Today, 2nd graders from Barbour County Primary & Eufaula Primary filled the Eufaula City Auditorium. After finishing 10 weeks in the Super Citizen Program, they are gathered to celebrate their accomplishments and honor local heroes from the stage.

Guidance counselor Reginald Hicks was honored by THREE classes today! “I appreciate the fact that they were able to show me that they were listening and they appreciate what I have been doing,” said Hicks. He went on to praise the sponsors of the Super Citizen Program in Eufaula / Barbour County: “Thank you for the experience and opportunity to have the kids come to the presentation and showing them things that will help them throughout their lives.”

Thanks to Mr. Palmer and his very hands-on teaching, these students have begun learning about their important roles in America’s future. The “Hands on Liberty” DVD series and accompanying activities and lesson plans teach crucial lessons in civics, character, financial literacy and social studies to the iPhone, iPad generation. And in the closing piece of the program, Helping Hands, students are applying those crucial lessons in the real world.

Students chose heroes who embodied the traits of amazing citizens and read essays from stage before presenting them with Liberty Pins. They learned that “when you honor a hero, you become a hero!”
