The popular idea of teenagers as lazy, unmotivated souls glued to their smartphones and video games in no way reflects the reality in Walton County.

At Loganville Christian Academy, especially, high school students are engaged in the community through their senior projects.

The senior projects see students engage in a work of service, career advancement or other community events prior to graduation.

The 40 seniors at LCA did a variety of projects, from shadowing professionals in their chosen careers to building a gazebo for the school to collecting stuffed animals for children in need.

LCA is not the only place where teens are engaged in the community and working to make the world a better place.

The county’s various schools are filled with students who strive to improve their cities, state and nation through various means.

It can be all too easy to write off the younger generation based on the sins of our own generations, but through senior projects and other efforts, Walton County’s teens show the future is brighter than we fear.

We are proud of LCA’s seniors and all of Walton’s teenage pupils.
