“The Super Citizen Lessons were set up in a clean manner that made it self explanatory on what was expected to be taught in the lesson.”

Catherine Preston- 5th Grade Teacher, Johnson Elementary School




“It’s great. I’ve been here the last three years and its good for the kids. It gives them something to hold onto, you know that they can expand on all year and respect the community. I do want to thank Alabama Power for sponsoring this. It’s a great program and we appreciate it.”

Robert Harris, Chairman, Lawrence County Commission




“We need more programs like this with positive influence. Just like we send our children out into the world for a specific trade, we need to send our children out into the world to serve other people.”

Lisa McMillian, Torch Team Hero, Brewton, AL




“I thought the program was really phenomenal. I just love that the students are enthused about being great citizens and showing their civic responsibility. Thank you Alabama Power, we couldn’t do this type of program and help our children become productive citizens without your help.”

Christopher Blair, Director for Curriculum and Technology, Thomasville City Schools




“This has been a great program for our schools because it has reminded our students of the value of citizenship and the value of America. This program is invaluable to our school system.”

Scott Beason, Senator




“We are defense and aerospace defense company and we want to let our people know what it takes to be free and our young people we need to train for that. You can see the energy in this room, you can see that the kids really want to be involved so I cant think of another way for this generation to learn the freedoms of this country.”

Bill Wahlheim, Vice President of Community Affairs, QinetiQ




“It was phenomenal today. The students were so excited when they saw Lady Liberty. They just could not believe that we had actually brought her here from New York city. I really didn’t realize the magnitude of the program until we started seeing all the community members arrive here today. To see the support that they were giving was just really exciting. I would like to thank all of the Alabama Power team that came for the support. It is amazing the things that they are doing for our community and I am really glad to be apart of it.”

Angela James, Principal, MacMillan International Academy




“I was so impressed. I mean what an amazing show! It was so fun they didn’t even call it learning, so this was just so great. The younger we can start teaching them our history and the legacy and joy of liberty and freedom the better. This is the age we can mold them and shape them into being a good citizen. Fundraising for this type of event is critical and we couldn’t do it without our sponsors. They play a critical role in shaping our young people, I think we will all benefit from the fruit that they are laboring as our young people grow up to be good community citizens”

Rena Anderson – Director of Community Relations for Huntsville City Schools




“It’s just truly, truly a wonderful program and it really stands for the things that our bank stands for, that I stand for, what our Chairman, our President and all of us stand for. And that’s to get these children to understand to be better citizens, to be better people, we’ll begin to change the world.”

Matt Cooper, Executive VP of CB&S Bank in Russellville City




“Awesome. This was a great program. I’m just so proud of my children to see how much they enjoyed it. Partnerships are critical, and Alabama Power has been a leader in this community. Thank you so much. Words just cant express the appreciation that I have for what you have done for our community. If you could just see the smiles on the children’s faces, how much they enjoyed the program.”

Keith Stewart, Superintendent, Bullock County Schools




“Every volunteer seemed well prepared. It was wonderful having a different face coming in and talking to the students.”

“The Super Citizen Lessons were set up in a clean manner that made it self explanatory on what was expected to be taught in the lesson.”

Catherine Preston, 5th Grade Teacher, Johnson Elementary School




“We are applying what we’re learning to our lives. Students have chosen 8 super citizens from our community, so we are working toward earning enough to order our statues. We’re over half way now. We have used the super citizen platform as a springboard for many things. I asked the students to write persuasive paragraphs to tell me what they would change in their school. That has led to 5th grade students beginning a new club, “Friends for Change,” and working to fund a project to improve our playground. I believe we are motivating students to get involved in their community, work together for the good of others, and raising self-esteem as well. We do have the next, great Americans sitting in our classrooms.”

Sandra Sandlin, 5th grade Teacher, Vinemont Elementary School




“Our partnerships are not important; they’re crucial. Everybody looks to government to be the end all, the solution. Government can do some things, but it’s corporate citizens like Alabama Power that really brings it to life, and brings it to the masses, to the level where most people live.”

Mike Grayson, Mayor of Demopolis, AL

Levon Heates, Mayor of Grove Hill, AL




“Very, very excited about it. It sounds like a fantastic program and I appreciate Alabama Power for bringing it to our school. I think it is so important for children to understand the things that make America exceptional. I talk to adults all the time and give speeches in a lot of places and so many of them are missing the value, the beauty of what this country is, so that’s why I am so excited that this is coming out to our kids.”

Alan Cosby, Superintendent, Etowah County Schools




“I really feel that the program is valuable and that it does a wonderful job of pulling the community and the school together to create a positive learning experience for our students. This type of instruction about civic responsibility has been sorely needed, and I feel that it has given us a degree of pride back in our country and in our roles as citizens of this great nation”

Tracy Walsh, 3rd Grade Teacher, Newton Elementary School




“I’m very excited about the opportunity to provide this to your schools and have spoken to Gwen Wheeler, principal at Jackson Intermediate in Clarke County, who told me that her students 'truly began to recognize the blessings of living in a country like the United States,' and it enhanced the social studies program in a way she could not imagine. She told me she actually saw a positive change in discipline after the completion of this and felt her students acquired an in-depth awareness of good citizenship and its importance to America and the future of America.”

Libby Little, Elementary Science/Social Studies Supervisor of Mobile County Public School System

Levon Heates – Mayor of Grove Hill Alabama




“I think the Super Citizen program is a great supplemental program to help support the Common Core Standards set by the department of education here in Atlanta Georgia. It helps expose our kids to different areas of citizenship that they may not necessarily be able to see or read about on an everyday basis and it helps get them more interested in being a more productive citizen.”

Tiffany Bernie Foil – Assistant Principal at William M Finch elementary school




“I am so glad my students participated in the Super Citizen Program. It promoted an understanding of each student’s role as a productive citizen in this great country that we live in while encouraging patriotism.This program helped our students become aware of issues that have molded our country into the nation of opportunity that ensures the same freedoms to all its citizens.”

“I know they’re walking away with self-esteem, higher thinking skills, believing it’s okay if you want to be a doctor, it’s okay if you want to be mailman – as long as you have that passion and you know whatever you do is going to impact our country.”

Kristan Davis, Gifted Specialist in Enterprise City Schools

“Thank you for your commitment and your willingness to support your students. I can’t tell you how excited I am that you are excited about the LIBERTY’S LEGACY program. Many of you are already making the connections between the program and our curriculum and how the two can reinforce each other. This is only the beginning.”

Reeivice L. Girtman, Principal of Eufaula Elementary School (To his teachers)




“Just a follow-up from Liberty’s Legacy Marketplace-I have a student that was so inspired, he is planning on getting his business license, and has started creating his own website for advertising. It was the student who made the coasters. I am so proud of him. This is another reason why I love this curriculum and project based learning.”

Faith Plunkett- 5th grade Teacher, Monte Sano Elementary

Angela Benefield, 5th Grade Teacher, Duck Springs Elementary




“The sponsors are investing in our children, they are investing in our future, they are taking those young minds and helping them realize what they are gonna be in the future. They are going to be leaders and that is so important. The sponsorship in this program is one that takes a young student and turns them into a citizen and turns them into part of the community. You take it to those levels, you are doing something special.”

Tommy Battle, Mayor of Huntsville, AL
