Barbour County, The Lakeside School & Eufaula 3rd Grade Super Citizens Honor Local Heroes

Today, more than 375 3rd grade students from Lakeside School, Eufaula Elementary, & Barbour County Intermediate 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.

Reading coach Betty Guilford was honored today and says, “This program teaches students at an early age to become good citizens. One day they will be the leaders of our country and we want them to be well-equipped.”

These students have learned their important roles in America’s future thanks to an immersive experience in civic, character, financial literacy and social studies. And in the closing piece of the program, Torch Teams, 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 Authentic Liberty Replicas . They learned that “when you honor a hero, you become a hero!”
