Crenshaw County elementary school students honored eight local heroes in their annual celebration Friday. Crenshaw Christian Academy, Luverne, Highland Home and Brantley Schools gathered in the Luverne School Auditorium for the culmination of a 10-week study, the Super Citizen Program, to celebrate their accomplishments and honor citizens for lending a helping hand.

As part of the program operated by the Liberty Learning Foundation, students learned their roles in America’s future through an immersive study in civics, character, financial literacy and social studies. Then, as Torch Teams they chose heroes who embody citizenship, writing essays which they read from the stage and then presented with tokens of appreciation.
