At their March 19 meeting, Lady Knox Chapter honored this year’s recipients of the Daughter’s of the American Revolution Good Citizens Award: Magnolia Vinci of the Watershed School in Camden and Isabel Danforth of the Midcoast School of Technology in Rockland with a certificate, wallet card, pin, and a check for $25.

Unable to attend but also honored as Good Citizens were Madeline Whytock of Oceanside High School, and Riley Anthony of Vinalhaven School.

Each year, area schools select one student from their senior class to be the Daughters of the American Revolution Good Citizen. The chosen student must have the following qualities:

Dependability — Truthfulness, loyalty, punctuality and being worthy of trust.

Service — Cooperation, courtesy, and contributing to the welfare of others.

Leadership — Personality, self-control, ability to assume responsibility, ability to inspire others, and a decision-maker.

Patriotism — Devotion to and support of one’s country, supporting service members and veterans, working for causes that make one’s community stronger, and appreciating the cultural and historic importance of America’s unique population.

Chapter Regent Joanne Richards, of Thomaston, extended her congratulations and recognition to the parents and families for their role in raising Good Citizen students, and thanked the area schools for their support and participation in the Good Cirizen Program.

A special thank you was extended to Lady Knox Chapter Good Citizens Chair Sally Ann Williamson for all her work this past year with wishes for continued success with the program.
