Principal Ronette Dill recently welcomed Lion Garland Goodwin and Clerk of Superior Court Pam Hyder to her school to celebrate liberty with fourth graders in the auditorium. Hyder engaged them immediately and her presentation about her duties generated many questions.
Principal Dottie Kinlaw also welcomed Lion Goodwin and County Commissioner Ted Owens to her school the next day. Commissioner Owens presented a motion picture and slide show about county government to fourth graders at Polk Central Elementary. The Lions furnish a booklet containing the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution with its Amendments, given to the students by an elected official in order to enhance its perceived value to them.
Lions are committed to our nation’s ideals and are pleased to thus foster a love of country and good citizenship in our young people. Columbus Lions will “Celebrate Liberty,” as their program is called, in other schools in coming days.
