Today, 225 students filled the cafeteria. After finishing 10 weeks in the Super Citizen Program, they are gathered to celebrate their accomplishments and honor local heroes from the stage.

“This program is going to teach these students about loving their country, about service over self, and about loving their neighbor and being a good citizen. What a great message! That’s what we want our children to believe. If they believe that and they instill those values when they get out of school, they are going to be productive members of society and that’s what we want.”

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, 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!”
