DAR celebrates 2023 Good Citizens

Feb. 19—The Governor Bradford Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution held its annual luncheon on Tuesday, Feb. 14 at First Presbyterian Church in Danville.

All Vermilion County high school students were invited to participate by writing an essay on "what is needed to keep our democracy."

The essays were then forwarded to the Chapter Committee to judge the essays. The winner received a $300 check from the Chapter and the essay will be forwarded on to the National Committee for another possible prize.

All students received a $100 check, pocket card and a National Good Citizens pin.

Principals as well as guidance counselors were encouraged to attend with the student.

Rebecca Rogers of Salt Fork High School was the recipient of the $300 check for the essay.
