Six students honored as Good Citizens by DAR members
On January 26, The Fort Bend Chapter and the Alexander Hodge Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, honored six high school students as Good Citizens at the George Memorial Library.
The students who were chosen by their high schools as Good Citizens are Logan Jeffery, Dulles; Madison Aranda, Ridge Point; Jai-Lyn Helaire, Marshall; and Sydney Reichardt, Kempner. Joanna Cyrus-David, Lamar Consolidated; and Eric Saldanha, Travis were the winners of the Good Citizen Essay Contest. Also, the Fort Bend Chapter named John Clayton as the American History Essay Awards winner.
Every year, the local DAR chapters invite area high schools to participate in the Good Citizen program. Each high school’s faculty and senior class choose one senior class member to receive the Good Citizen award.
National DAR guidelines require nominees to “possess and display qualities of honor, dependability, service, leadership and patriotism, the very same qualities displayed so admirably by our country’s forefathers.”
Each Good Citizen received a certificate and a pin. A reception followed the ceremony which included family, friends and DAR members.
