DAR chapter awards local high school students

in Uncategorized by

The November meeting of the Thomas Heyward, Jr. Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution featured a program about Tamassee School, the National DAR-sponsored residential school facility located in the Upstate. This is an outstanding resource for troubled, abandoned and abused children; and members in attendance were moved by the program and were encouraged to support this facility and visit the property when in that area. In keeping with the education theme of the meeting, the chapter’s annual Good Citizens Awards were given to two remarkable local students who exemplify the character traits of fine American citizenship. Students Hannah Durbin of Beaufort High School and Madeline Griffith of Beaufort Academy were chosen by faculty members of their respective schools. The winners each received a pin, a certificate and a cash award. The ladies of the DAR are always enthusiastic in their recognition of students who are serious about holding themselves to high standards and thereby setting a positive example for their fellow students.

The meeting ended with a tea reception so members could meet and congratulate the award winners and their families.
