DAR presents awards

MT. VERNON — — Four Jefferson County students were recognized by the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution on Saturday.

The NSDAR Chapter Old Goshen Trail were the presenters of the Good Citizen awards held at the Mt. Vernon Airport.

Recipients selected include: Emily Browder of Woodlawn High School, Jacob Felty of Webber Township High school, Chelsea Oliver of Waltonville High School and Sadie Schnautz of Mt. Vernon Township High School. All the students rank high in their class.

"The program is a way to recognize an outstanding young person who exhibits the qualities of good citizenship in their communities, their homes and school," said Janet Buchanan, chairman of the Good Citizen Program.

Buchanan spoke about each of the student's school activities, their characteristics and future plans after high school.

Each of the candidates received a certificate, a gold pin and a monetary award from the Old Goshen Trail Chapter.

"I want to commend the parents for raising good citizens," Buchanan said.

Each student was selected by the faculty and students in their schools.

Schnautz said it was exciting to be chosen for the recognition program.

"I found out I was selected back in the fall. Having this to be able to put on my resume is going to be nice, Schnautz said.

The candidates were required to write an essay answering the following question: "How does one's personal heritage affect one's duties to out nation?" Each student had two hours to compete the essay without using any form of research.

"The essays were all well written by all the students and very close when choosing the overall one," Buchanan said.

The students all had to have certain attributes to qualify for award, these include dependability, service, leadership and patriotism.

Browder was the overall recipient that received the Good Citizen award. The young woman said she was honored.
