4 Local Area High School Seniors Receive Good Citizen Award
The John Abston Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution presented the Good Citizens Award on Saturday, February 10, at their chapter meeting. The DAR Good Citizens Program and Scholarship contest encourages and rewards the qualities of good citizenship. The program is open to all senior class students enrolled in accredited public or private secondary schools that are in good standing with their state boards of education. United State citizenship is not required. The student selected must exemplify these qualities to an outstanding degree: dependability, including truthfulness, loyalty, and punctuality; service, including cooperation, courtesy and consideration of others; leadership, including personality, self-control, and ability to assume responsibility; and patriotism, including unselfish interest in family, school, community, and nation.
This year, 4 of the schools in our area have selected a DAR Good Citizen who exemplify these qualities. Congratulations to the following 2018 Good Citizen Award Recipients!
- Abby Kistner of McKinney Christian Academy
- Nathan Anchondo of McKinney High School
- Brendan Corcoran of McKinney North High School
- Sara Ann Schuster of McKinney Boyd High School
Sara Ann's application earned a scholarship for college and has advanced to the state level for additional scholarship consideration.
These award recipients received a pin and certificate from Regent Missy McPherson and Award Chair Anneliese Griego and were applauded for their efforts and accomplishments.
Each year, students are encouraged to participate in this scholarship program. Additional information about the Good Citizens Program can be obtained from area high schools or the John Abston Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
