Livingston Academy Honored For 100% Voter Registration

Livingston Academy received the Anne Dallas Dudley Gold Level Award Tuesday morning for registering 100 percent of its eligible students to vote.

Secretary of State Tre Hargett said this is the third year of giving these awards and Livingston Academy has already won twice. He said the accomplishment speaks well of the community’s future. He said he commends the parents in the city of Livingston for driving home the importance of civic participation.

“It doesn’t happen without support from all sides,” Hargett said. “We’ve got great student ambassadors here. We’ve got great leadership at the school and at the system level. You’ve got local leaders like Representative Butler as well as Senator Yager who also emphasize these things, so it’s a team effort. And it’s great when all these things come together and work to get all these students registered.”

Hargett said only 33 schools throughout the state reached the achievement this year. He said he believes Livingston Academy can be an example for other schools across Tennessee.

“It speaks well about the values,” Hargett said. “I know this is a community that not only supports civic participation but also appreciates its veterans. You know, that’s a long-demonstrated value here, and we’re just excited to come back here for the second year in a row and present this award.”

He said for a school to reach this level of passion for helping move its community forward two years in a row is remarkable and he hopes to be back for a third time in 2025.
