Today, hundreds of second, third and fifth grade students from Huntsville City Schools filled the Huntsville High School Auditorium. After finishing 10 weeks in the Super Citizen Program, the students from Highlands, Williams, Jones Valley, Morris, and Ridgecrest are gathered to celebrate their accomplishments and honor local heroes from the stage.
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 (or “Helping Hands” for the younger students), students are applying those crucial lessons in the real world.  They chose heroes who embodied the traits of amazing citizens and read essays from stage before presenting them with Authentic Liberty Replicas & Liberty Pins. They learned that “when you honor a hero, you become a hero!”
