On Wednesday, May 3rd, more than 500 2nd and 3rd grade students from Pike County, Banks, and Goshen Elementary schools filled the Troy University Trojan Center Ballroom. 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 (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 & Trust. With their help, we are teaching, inspiring and empowering our Next Great Americans.
