Hartselle students participate in character expo

Special to the Enquirer

Hartselle Junior High seventh graders came together this past week for a #GoodCharacters Expo to share powerful service projects with community members, mentors and peers.

After weeks in the American Character Program, learning about historical figures who transformed America, they were then challenged to begin transforming things themselves.

Speaking from their booths, students shared how they formed groups, identified problems, worked with local mentors and began taking action. In addition to civics and character learned in the program’s curriculum, they gained real-world practice in collaboration, service, empathy, compassion and communication.

“It was a proud moment for the Liberty Learning team as we saw first-hand how our third and fifth grade programs had paved the way for these middle schoolers to take ownership in their roles as citizens. Their ideas, ingenuity and determination showed us America’s future is in good hands,” Tricia Bobo said.

The immersive educational experience is made possible because generous local and state sponsors understand that these lessons must be taught despite time and budget constraints, she added.
