Libertad Chapter, NSDAR, Honors Liberty County Seniors as Good Citizens

DAYTON, April 9, 2015 – The DAR Good Citizens Award and Scholarship Contest is intended to
encourage and reward the qualities of good citizenship. This award recognizes and rewards individuals who possess good citizenship qualities of dependability, service, leadership and patriotism in their homes, schools and communities. These students are selected by their teachers and peers because they demonstrate these qualities to an outstanding degree.

This program is only open to high school seniors whose schools are accredited by their state
board of education. Only one student per year may be honored as a school’s DAR Good Citizen. (United States citizenship is not required.) Once a student is chosen as the DAR Good Citizen the student is invited to participate in the scholarship portion of the program. This consists of a personal statement and an essay. One of the Good Citizens is chosen as the recipient of the Libertad Chapter Scholarship.

At the regular March meeting of Libertad Chapter, NSDAR, the DAR Good Citizen Chairperson Betty Reeves introduced each Good Citizen winner, who was selected by the faculty and the senior class, from the six high schools in Liberty County. Each winner spoke about his/her school and community activities, as well as future goals. Each winner received a certificate, presented by Susan Allison and a pin, presented by Betty Reeves. The winners are Lilibeth Flores from Cleveland High School, Dillon Wood from Dayton High School, Mikayla Mayes from Hardin High School, Joanie Warren from Hull-Daisetta High School, Katherine Harris from Liberty High School, and Zachary Brewer from Tarkington High School.

Donna Barranco, Cora Beth Evans, Nan Forney, Mary Partlow, and Nancy Archer were hostesses for the occasion.
