The scholarship recipient is chosen from the winners of the Chapter’s Good Citizen Contest, where students from area High Schools are chosen by their peers, and voted on by their teachers, to be DAR Good Citizens. We are proud of Haley and her accomplishments at Dayton High School.
Guest Speaker: Ken Defoor and wife Jo, Texas Equusearch
Next was an informative program by Ken Defoor, an active member of Texas Equusearch. Ken told how the group was founded by Tim Miller in 2000 after the abduction and murder of his daughter in 1984. Texas Equusearch uses volunteers on foot, horseback, ATVs, boats, helicopters and unmanned drones to search for persons reported missing in any state, and even internationally. Ken was surprised in 2012 with the Chapter Community Service Award, and attended the October meeting that year under the guise that he would give the program, so he was finally able to present the program he prepared for that night.
