The Twenty First Star Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution recognized Good Citizens and American History Scholars at area high schools.
To receive a Good Citizen award, students need to demonstrate leadership, service, dependability and patriotism and be recognized by their teachers and members of the senior class for these accomplishments.
To receive an award for outstanding work in American History, the criteria differs from each school but includes scholarship, academic excellence, a passion for history, a love of learning, and a positive attitude.
Eight students from the Maine and Niles Township high schools were acknowledged at year-end award ceremonies. Twenty First Star Chapter DAR members Nancy Meyer, Pat Gould, Bonnie Reese and Barrie Shinn congratulated the students.
Niles History Scholars will be announced in the fall.
At Maine East, Angela Marie Wong received a Good Citizen award, and Theodora Ivanova received a History Scholar award.
At Maine West, Margaret McCabe received a Good Citizen award, and Pha Thaprawat received a History Scholar award.
At Maine South, Patrick Wohl received a Good Citizen award, and Natalie Kirchoff received the History Scholar award.
At Niles North, Sumona Munshi was awarded the Good Citizen award, as was Julia Rose Zasso at Niles West.
Any woman 18 and older, regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background, who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution, is eligible for membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution.
