Good Citizens ceremony scheduled
The Mount Garfield Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution will honor students from area high schools as DAR Good Citizens at a ceremony and reception at 1 p.m. Jan. 11 at Whitman Educational Center, 248 S. Fourth St.
The students to be honored are Tessa Erin Slagle, Rangely High School; Larissa Marie Cox, Grand Junction High School; Grace Elizabeth Nelson, Fruita Monument High School; Phoebe Abigail Stoye, Palisade High School; Michael Christopher Smith, Caprock Academy; and Shamron Janay Willison, Central High School.
Five students participated in a scholarship competition and the winner, whose entry will advance to a statewide competition, will be announced at the meeting.
The essay theme was “Our American Heritage and Our Responsibility for Preserving It,” with a focus on “How does one’s personal heritage affect one’s duties to our nation?”
The DAR Good Citizen is awarded to high school seniors who demonstrate qualities of good citizenship — dependability, service, leadership and patriotism. Each student is nominated by a process in each of their schools.
