Rep. Loudermilk (R-GA) recently visited with students at Grace Academy in Cartersville to talk about America's rich heritage.

“I’m inspired by the resurgence of young people who are passionate about preserving America’s heritage and God-given rights,” said Rep. Loudermilk. "The pioneering spirit that led to American exceptionalism is alive and well, and I’m confident these students will help keep America great in the coming decades."

During his visit, Rep. Loudermilk shared stories about life as a U.S. Congressman, including his ongoing efforts to craft public policy with the presidential administration and fellow members of Congress. He also told students about his surprise encounter with President Barack Obama in the batter’s box at the Congressional Baseball Game for Charity, and the unique responsibility of working among the branches of government that make up America’s Constitutional Republic.

After answering students' questions, Rep. Loudermilk encouraged them to remember America’s journey from tyranny to freedom, and the Constitutional principles that have become a model of self-governance for the world.

“It was an honor to have Congressman Loudermilk at Grace Academy. Not only did he help our students realize the importance of God in founding our country, but he also showed them that God is still important in our government today. By speaking to our students, Congressman Loudermilk showed them that they were important and that they could make a positive impact in our country,” said Grace Academy Pastor and Administrator Richard Webster.

Located in Cartersville, Grace Academy provides a Christ-centered education to students from kindergarten through twelfth grade.
