Today more than 160 seventh graders from Admiral Moorer Middle School in Eufaula gathered together for the first-time ever American Character Program Kickoff and a very revealing performance by Libby Liberty™ . The American Characters Program that they will experience in the weeks ahead is a continuation of the groundbreaking Super Citizen civic education program that has been taught for the past four years.

In this 30-minute theatrical performance, Libby Liberty™ (actress Kristen Sharp) reflects on the characters she has played and the kind of character it takes to go from small-town to Broadway and back again. Kristen’s powerful story challenges the students at Admiral Moorer Middle School to discover their own true character through perseverance, self-esteem, service and … song

These crucial lessons are being taught thanks to funding from the Barbour County Community Alliance, Keystone Foods LLC, BBVA Compass – Corporate, Johnson Outdoors Marine Electronics, FEB Bank, Alfa – Barbour County, and MidSouth Bank – Eufaula, WestRock who understand that these lessons must be taught despite school budget cuts.
