2 Turning today's students into tomorrow's Super Citizens Through the support of Wiregrass EC and Covington EC, students in Covington and Geneva counties are learning about the value of good citizenship. Contributions from Wiregrass EC and Covington EC assist schools in providing the Super Citizen Program, a 10-week civics- and citizenship-based curriculum that also teaches character and financial responsibility. At kickoff events, the Super Citizen Program's Libby Liberty taught second- and fifth-grade students about American history, financial responsibility and the importance of good citizenship. In an ongoing educational program, lower elementary students learn from the "Hands of Liberty" DVD series, while upper elementary students use the Super Citizen Program kit, featuring DVD-based lessons and class activities. Older students will also take part in the "Torch Teams" project, in which students will honor local heroes during a graduation ceremony later this year. g Right: Geneva County Elementary School students meet Libby Liberty after their Super Citizens Kickoff Event.
