Early County Elementary Second Graders Celebrate their Heroes!

Today, 2nd graders from Early County Elementary 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.

“It was so exciting to be honored by these students and to see the enthusiasm they exhibited. I’ve never seen a program quite like this,” said Blakely, GA Mayor Anthony Howard. “I have no doubt they are going to walk away with a new understanding of our community and what it takes to be a productive community member. That’s so important especially with small towns across America.”

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 a tech-centric 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!”
