The DAR Good Citizen Award is to reward individuals who possess good citizenship qualities of dependability, service, leadership, and patriotism in their homes, schools, and communities. Teachers and the school’s senior class select the students. Once a student is chosen as a high school’s DAR Good Citizen, they are invited to participate in the scholarship portion of the program by submitting an essay. The essay winner is selected by independent judges.
The following students were the recipients of the DAR Good Citizens Award in their school districts: Maclaen Johnson of Bishop Canevin High School, Antonio Barbarossa of Cannon McMillan High School, Madeline Thompson of Mt. Lebanon High School, and Eva Rankin of Upper St. Clair High School.
Miss Rankin was selected as the Bethel Fife and Drum Chapter Good Citizen winner. Miss Rankin’s entry was forwarded to the Pennsylvania State Society Daughters of the American Revolution for competitive consideration at the state level.
