Nine role models of leadership and character represented their high schools at the Good Citizens Award Meeting and Tea. The event - co-sponsored by the Antietam and Conocheague chapters of the Daughters of the American Revolution - was held in their honor at the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts on Wednesday, March 21.
One senior was chosen from each public high school and St. Maria Goretti High School by their guidance counselor or school faculty as the DAR Good Citizen. They were selected for possessing the qualities of dependability, service, leadership and patriotism.
Each student wrote an essay on the topic "Our American Heritage and Our Responsibility for Preserving It."
Eileen Renwick, of the Antietam Chapter, and Judith Hotsko, of the Conococheague Chapter, served as Good Citizen Tea chairpersons. Students were joined by family members and school representatives. Ruth Ann Callaham and Bernadette Wagner represented the Washington County Board of Education.
