The Fort Bend Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution honored four high school students as Good Citizens recently at the George Memorial Library.
In addition, a sixth grade student received special essay award.
The students who were chosen by their high schools as Good Citizens are Anthony Ray Amy, Kempner High School; Golden Amadi, Travis High School; and Katie Master, Ridge Point High School; and Lesly Sandoval, Stafford High School. Anthony Amy was the winner of the Good Citizen Essay Contest.
Winner of the American History Essay Contest was William Mallory, a sixth-grader. William read his winning essay and received a medal and certificate.
Every year, the local Fort Bend Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, 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 Daughters of the American Revolution 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. The winning essay is sent on to state judging. A reception followed the ceremony, which included family, friends and Daughters of the American Revolution members.
