Approximately 150 second graders from Andalusia Elementary School got to experience a real life Statue of Liberty, Libby Liberty™.

The Covington County Community Alliance sponsored the Liberty Learning Foundation to put on an interactive learning experience for the children.

The Liberty Learning Foundation was founded in 2010, and works out of Huntsville. The foundation works to help underfunded schools with free teaching tools to better understand history, heritage, and more about American ideals.

Libby Liberty™ taught the children everything from actual lengths of the Statue of Liberty, the symbolization of the statue, to imagining what coming to America was like for immigrants.

After the interactive experience, the class is turned into DVD based lessons in civics, character, financial literacy, and the Great American History.

The sponsors of this event include: AlaTrade Foods Inc, Alfa, Covington Electric Cooperative, Power South Energy Association, ScreenTech, and the Solon and Martha Dixon Foundation.
