HJHS students participate in American Character Program

Special to the Enquirer

Seventh-grade students at Hartselle Junior High kicked off their American Character Program and are on their way to becoming #GoodCharacters.

With the help of local and state sponsors, seventh-grade students from Hartselle Junior High School are beginning the American Character Program this year. Students learn civics, history, character, careers and financial literacy in a format that uses excitement as its engagement platform. The lessons are in comic book format and expand into class exercises and activities.

After studying the character and impact of historical American figures, they are then challenged to put their own character in action.

At the kickoff, students were introduced to the program and the service-learning component that will empower them to make a difference in their community and beyond. These “#GoodCharacters” projects will see students, along with local mentors, working to solve real issues.

In the program’s conclusion, students will hold a #GoodCharacters Expo, where they will show off their bright ideas and the big deeds they accomplished.

The middle school program is a continuation of the Super Citizen Program, which has inspired and taught similar concepts to many of these students in elementary school.
