HJHS students participate in #GoodCharacters Expo

Special to the Enquirer

After weeks in the American Character Program, learning about historical figures who transformed America, students were 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.

These students have previously been through foundational programs in the third and fifth grades that paved the way for them to take ownership in their roles as citizens. Their ideas, ingenuity and determination prove America’s future is in good hands.

This immersive educational experience is made possible through generous local and state sponsors who understand these lessons must be taught despite time and budget constraints.
