Today, more than 650 third grade students filled the W. P. Davidson High School Auditorium. After finishing 10 weeks in the Super Citizen Program, they 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 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.

“I think it helps children realize that becoming a Super Citizen will help them in their endeavors when it comes to getting a job out in the community,” says Mobile Chamber Ambassador Phillip Moore. After seeing the Super Citizen Program take place for several years, he explained, “The morals that are taught go beyond graduating as a third grader. They are life lessons, taken into adulthood, their marriage, in their mentorship with their own children and grandchildren. It’s fundamentally planted in them at a young age and they can carry it with them for the rest of their lives.”

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!”
