On February 14, 2019, at the Community Bank in Berryville, the Abendschone Chapter, NSDAR conducted the 2018-19 award ceremony honoring local high school seniors.
The DAR Good Citizens Award and Scholarship Contest, created in 1934, is intended to encourage and reward the qualities of good citizenship.
This award recognizes and rewards individuals who possess the qualities of dependability, service, leadership, and patriotism in their homes, schools, and communities. These students are selected by their teachers and peers because they demonstrate these qualities to an outstanding degree.
Each school’s DAR Good Citizen received a DAR Good Citizens pin, certificate, wallet recognition card, and a monetary award. The winners were Brian Hall of Berryville HIgh School, Makenzie Meyer of Eureka Springs High School, and Trinity McMahan of Green Forest High School. Also pictured is Dana Sue Busch, DAR Good Citizens Award committee chair. The grand winner of the essay portion of the contest was Trinity McMahan. She will be now eligible for Arkansas State DAR Good Citizen Recognition.
