Today, more than 425 2nd and 3rd grade students filled the cafeteria at Troy Elementary School. 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 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!”

Today’s event and the donation of Super Citizen teaching kits was made possible by Troy Bank and Trust and passionate community sponsors. With their help, we are teaching, inspiring and empowering our Next Great Americans.
Did you see today’s event? Were you as emotional as we were? Will you help us continue this amazing mission?

We were so proud to have support from Troy Mayor Jason Reeves and Troy Bank and Trust’s Lisa Law, Bob Mills and Diana Lee who attended the event to show their encouragement to the students. Thank you for all that you do for the city of Troy.
