Today, November 12th, 150 second graders from Chelsea Park Elementary School gathered to celebrate a special day.  Not only were these students graduating from Liberty Learning Foundation‘s Super Citizen Program, they were also honoring heroes in their community.

This program teaches lessons in civics, character, financial literacy and social studies. It also teaches that “when you honor a hero, you become a hero!” So these students took the stage today to do just that.

A representative from each classroom spoke about how their hero deserved the special Lady Liberty torch pin and how they had impacted the lives around them. Among the heroes honored were: Lisa George, Darell Lowery, Mayor Niven, Nurse Tracy Watson, Steve Gaither, Mary Anderson and Casey Morris. 

With the lessons they have learned from Libby Liberty™, her helping hand Mr. Palmer, their excellent teachers and community leaders, these students are well on their way to becoming our Next Great Americans.
