The Antietam and Conococheague chapters of the Daughters of the American Revolution held the annual scholarship tea March 7 at Washington County Museum of Fine Arts in Hagerstown’s City Park.

The tea was held to honor students chosen from area schools as good citizens.

The nine students were seniors chosen from Washington County public schools.

Their selection was based on demonstrated qualities of dependability, service, leadership and patriotism.

Other qualifications were outstanding grades, letters of recommendation and completing an assigned essay.

This year’s good citizens are Zeyu Hao, Boonsboro High; Abby Harp, North Hagerstown High; Sarah Stayer, Smithsburg High; Kelsie Munch, Washington County Technical High; Christina Thompson, Barbara Ingram School for the Arts; Benjamin Cornwell, Clear Spring High; Jaclyn Hixon, Hancock Middle-Senior High; Marantha Teferi, South Hagerstown High; and Evan Hardy, Williamsport High.

During the program, the students, their parents, principals and guidance counselors were introduced and their credentials were described in detail, along with their future plans.

The honorees were presented with a DAR Good Citizen pin, monetary award and a certificate.  

After the presentation, a reception was held to honor and congratulate the students.
